Unfortunately, the HTTP access is very messy (you must have noticed that by
now). I am a bit concerned that making supplementary requests even when we
don't actually seek might not be appreciated by server dudes.
More importantly, what happens if the URL refers to a "continuous"
(non-seekable) stream, such as an MP3 radio? it is not entirely clear to me
from reading the patch.
