hmmm, good point, but it obviously breaks fallback-override (as far as it's 
useful), and also could cause your outgoing bandwidth to be swamped.

Suggestion: How about allowing the admin to configure a bitrate for the 
fallback file.  This would make it their responsibility to get it right, 
but would solve both of the above.
