Fragmentation is can be dealt with by freeing and reiniting everything like we do
for codecs on track change.

This is ugly, but for something like voice which is probably only active for 10
or 20 seconds and then shuts down for several minutes or more, its probably not that
big a deal.  It'll be annoying to implement but the time average overhead will be 
quite small.
