The issues were related to performance on MP3 hardware, so no real fault
of the VBR scheme, other than some issue with LAME not creating headers.
No quality concerns at all. LAME is very good at employing VBR for good
quality/size tradeoffs. I understand that WMA 9's 2 pass VBR is quite
good too, though I haven't done extensive testing.
