This makes no sense. Not only is this patch über-ugly but it would lead to 
complete garbage for non-seekable and/or content-encoded resources.

Plus the performance will suck if you don't reuse the HTTP connection manager 
across ranges.

In other words, I can't see this working properly through the VLC stream 
abstraction, as opposed to using vlc_http_resource et al. directly.
