The multistream API lets you specify things like "take these 8 input
streams and encode them as 4 stereo pairs in the following arrangement",
and produces output that includes all 4 stereo encodings glued together
into one packet. That packet can then be losslessly split at some later
If you need to mux some freshly-encoded streams and some streams that were
previously encoded ... well, you might have to write some code yourself,
but you can still use the same bitstream format as Multistream.
