Another option would be extending the mp3 splitting plugin. If this one
could be extended so it would split the mp3 at the correct places so all
remaining files would look like normal mp3s, it would be fine I guess, and
you won't be messing with the deep-into-rockbox code. But I have even less
idea of how the tags are encapsulated in the stream.
