Great idea! It seems daft though to have to first down load the files
before playing them. What we need is a smarter approach which concurrently
retreives the audio data and pipes it into the audio player process.

You will still need a few seconds (~5) to fill up a fifo so that you don't
get gaps in the sound track due fluctuations in network traffic.

Unfortunately, very few of us in HPLabs have audio capability on our
workstations - grr gnash grr
