Could be, but I guess the main reason of the original post was the typo in
the NoDo-document. If somebody reads ...does _now_ allow this..., it's just
a natural to search for the feature. I think it was meant to be ...does
_not_ allow this...

But on-the-fly-processing of the mp3 stream is a good idea...
