Sorry, but what is the "file buffering" used for? To keep next tracks
pre-loaded and avoid hd spinup? But that it is only worth it if you load
a playlist and stick to it, not everyone will do that. I find that I
will listen to a few tracks, stop and switch to something diferent.
The extra power drain of increasing the average cpu frequency will
affect *everyone* regardless of their listening patterns...
