Wrong (?) bitrate for wav files

This is mostly nit-picking at this point, and I get as confused as everyone
with the kilo/kibibyte thing, but for coherency's sake I think there is a bug
in the way TagLib returns the bitrate for for wav files:
a stereo wav file will have a bitrate of 1378 instead of 1411, because TagLib
takes the number of bits (1,411,200) and returns that divided by 1024 (see
However, AFAIK the other formats in TagLib (ie, mp3, mp4, etc...) return the
number of bits/s divided by 1000, to have a result in kilobit/s instead of
It also seems the "standard" unit for audio bitrates is the kilo (1000)
instead of the kibi (1024), see for instance:
So I would propose that wavproperties.cpp be changed to behave the same way as
the other tag types.
