Woops, caught me there.  It's exciting to have programmatic audio 
available AT ALL, was forgetting some of the details.

But since you mention it, any idea whether the Moz developers plan on 
implementing seamless looping or not?  I'm curious whether anyone cares, 
and what folks interpretation of looping means.  The spec should be made 
more specific, one way or another ("must/should/may implement seamless 
looping").  Or even provide some other mechanism to allow for seamless 
looping if the current APIs are insufficient, and it's deemed important.
