That would be great to see in Cortado.

I'm using Cortado in a Java application, and have been trying to  
figure out why Cortado can seek reliably (well, reproducibly perhaps)  
but doesn't reliably report the current position, or resume from pause  
properly. It sounds like these are known issues though. Is there any  
way to raise the priority of these issues?
