RDO ETC1 texture compression prototype

I've now got a basic ETC1 RDO compressor working. Clusterization is now used on both the block colors/intensity table indices and selectors. This compressor supports the entire ETC1 format: 2 subblocks per block, flipping, and both differential and individual block color modes.

Here's kodim14 using only 256 unique selector vectors and 256 block colors/intensity table indices:

This is just a bare minimum prototype. It doesn't support crunch-style macroblock tiling, or required things like mipmaps, texture arrays, etc. It's a proof of principle prototype that crunch-style RDO compression is totally doable in the full ETC1 format.

Here are more examples. I have PSNR and SSIM stats, which I'm going to focus on next.
