I'm looking for an alternative (non-patented) to my current order-1
arithmetic coder for the final stage of a bwt compressor that will achieve
comparable results. My current compressor gives an average of 2.231 on the
Calgary Corpus. I've seen mention of a multi-tree huffman method that looked
good, but I can seem to locate it again :-(
