It was not my idea. The same constant is already used by the
MLP/TrueHD decoder. I thought that it doesn't make sense to
use a different name for every decoder...

Besides, I don't think that the name is useless. Currently the decoders
all output "short" samples (shorter than they should be). "non short"
simply means that the decoders stop shorten the audio samples.

Whatever, any name is fine with me. Just let's use the same
constant name for all decoders, please.
