2 other bugs came up, one was relating to excessive memory usage when
using theora and server full messages. Both are fixed now

they work here, although the hidden attribute is associated with a
mount, not a relay.

this is fixed now, turned out to be a read lock not releasing.

just state a filename within webroot. The server creates a source thread
so that it interacts with the existing fallback mechanism.  No timing
goes on with the data stream, and usual rules for fallbacks apply, ie
same format and same parameters.

Well 302 will only work on initial connection not after streaming has
occurred. I've still to work on the existing mechanism to see which is
best but that could work.
