It's less of a technical issue and more of the fact that it's still
quite hard to justify. When you're seeking quickly, by the time you've
heard the clip you're quite a distance past it anyway. If it's seeking
slowly, it's preventing quick seeking. Why is audible seeking better
than "seek, listen, seek, listen?"

I find with Rockbox I can seek _much_ faster in audiobooks than I could
in things with audible seeking.
