new optional speed-up

I've added a new encoding option which will sacrifice some accuracy in the bit allocation by skipping the binary search. This gives about a 4% to 5% speed-up. The commandline option for Aften is "-fba 1" (stands for fast bit allocation).

Dear Justin,

When i use this
version (aften-daily-
091306.tar.bz2), the usage of
aften is showing as
following:

[-fba #]
Fast bit allocation (default: 0)
0 = faster encoding
1 = more accurate
encoding
