normal behavior is that the radio shuts off starting a plugin that requires sound. Can this be changed so that the radio keeps on playing?

I can see a number of ways to do this - the patch does 1/2 (it switches to playing the radio always (for doom)) - but I do not know if this is proper and whether there are other reasons not to have this...

Additional comments about closing:  Always playing the radio in doom is not wanted, also this patch is iaudio x5/m5 only. If you make it configurable and generic for all fm capable targets it will be considered.
