I guess it would be possible to do (if we work around the need for the mp3end
label in, but if we did that we'd have to add code on various places
that "allocates" different buffer sizes where we today simply use 'char
buffer[SIZE]' etc. And we don't even have dynamic memory allocation, so we'll
get into trouble... I'm not sure it's worth that trouble.

The thing is, I think the 8MB people haven't yet used their ability to the
max yet. I mean, with 8MB ram the 400-file limit could be extended, the
10000-entry playlist limit could be extended etc. Extending nothing but the
mp3-buffer is a bit limited, imho.
