I don't know how jinzora handles things. IOW what happens if you push
the fast forward button in your client or skip 2min ahead right away.
My Idea would be the client requests another part of the file, thus
reducing bandwith usage and speeding things up. (instead of downloading
the whole file) 
Most http servers support this requests (they are needed for resume
download feature) I'm not sure about client software. This will
need things like guessing bitrate on vbr files etc.
