Yes but due to the response we can keep the current behavior if you
answer no, and get the proposed new behavior with the answer yes. And
the ability to choose one of the behavior in each instance of the patch.

On another note, for users of flash based targets the additional
buffering isn't bad. I, for one, would appreciate music playing while
browsing to the album I really want to listen to (being on a flash target).

Best regards.
