In situations like this, how is bitrate measured? When you say "cannot exceed
X no matter what", what time-period is this over? Since vorbis is a
block-based codec (as are many others, including mp3), it's essential to
specify some time window - even if that's just a single block (but note that
since there's more than one block size, even that can be problematic).
Nobody seems to want to say what they actually MEAN by "CBR".
