   Or if you have two pieces that are supposed to go together, put them 
in the same Vorbis file and keep meta information about the track 
information.  Then, if you want to play just one, seek into the right 
spot in the file.

   The smoothing is more general, but I'm planning on using the 'single 
big file' approach since when I play a song by itself I may want a 
different section of audio than when I play a whole album and this way I 
only need to encode it once and just store a little meta info.
