This exists in my branch currently, the reports so far indicate it's
working fine. Note that the same considerations that apply to fallback
mounts also apply to intro files, ie same compression format and the
audio (for various players) would be better to keep to the same
samplerate and channels.

Testers can get kh6 from SVN or http://mediacast1.com/~karl/
