Well, that might have been true a year or two ago - but a lot of people have
the ability to hear 128k streams these days (look at the rankings at
www.shoutcast.com). And - at least with MP3 - there is a *big* difference in
sound quality between 96k & 128k.

I'm hoping that Ogg Vorbis will produce decent-sounding sub-128k streams,
since many of the next-gen wireless networks will be running at 128k.
