[paranoia] Not A Bug

Would it be possible to add (or is there already a way) to specify
negative offsets in the spanning syntax? The issue is this: alot of the
time when ripping individual tracks from a CD, cdparanoia seems to miss
the opening fractions of a song. When playing the CD with a cd player,
the song index seems to be correct, i.e., when I go to song 4, it starts
without missing those opening fractions. When I rip the song with
paranoia, the beginning fractions are missing when playing the resulting
wav file. A way to combat this would be to be able to specify something
like 'cdparanoia "4:[-::5]-5:[::5]"', which would rip from 5 seconds
before track 4 starts to 5 seconds after track 4 ends. Relative offsets
would be alot easier than figuring out how long track 3 is and subtracting
5 seconds etc.
Is this resonable to do? An example CD would be the soundtrack to "The
Crow", where the NIN "Dead Souls" song #4 has this exact problem, at least
on my "TOSHIBA CD-ROM XM-6202BD".
