It'd be possible, but non-trivial. Also, the 'reappearing' source may have no 
relation to the previous source - so there's a lot of checking needed to see 
if the sources are compatible. And if it's using mp3 metadata, 
re-sychronising the metadata send interval would be... a pain.

Perhaps a 2.1 feature.
