I now committed a change that removes the "Clipped samples" stats from
"-ev". The "Max gain without clipping" is still available as that has
clear semantics (and is useful).

To get the same effect, I'll add more 'volume buckets' to "-ev" to get the
same effect. So you'll have a counter for samples in (0dB,3dB],
(-0.1dB,0dB] and (-3dB,0dB] ranges.

If there's a real need to track sample counts for an arbitrary amplitude
range, then let's add that separately.
