Is that necessary? Wouldn't it be possible to refill the main buffer and
just leave the prebuffer where it is, and allow it to be depleted? I guess
in my mind, I'm picturing the prebuffer being tapped upon track change and
then the mp3 decoder being directed to the regular buffer after it has
recovered from the change.
