A strict timer record feature might impose significant gaps in between
the files, as I imagine it would take some time for the buffers to get
written out so the next recording could start.

Does anyone have an idea of the minimum amount of time it would take to
close out one recording and start another? I'm just curious if it would
be some sort of acceptable amount of time or if we would risk having many
seconds of gaps at each "track change".
