wavrms changes

I have done some modification to the wavrms utility program which can be used to give a dialnorm setting recommendation.
  1. enabled piped input for Windows
  2. added an option to specify a time range to analyze
  3. simplified the calculation
Now dialnorm is estimated by taking the average RMS, ignoring those blocks which have RMS outside a specific range. For now the range is -40dB to -15dB, but this may change after more testing is done.

Just wanted to say thank you for your hard work - I was almost ready to pay the $499 for the Premiere ac-3 encoder (they don't tell you about that when you buy the program and assume you don't have to pay more for something as obviously needed as AUDIO for DVD) but then I looked over at the trusty Linux machine under my desk and thought - nah - someone else out there needs what I need and probably is much smarter ;-)
