True. I have read the MAC/APE SDK once and at the highest compression level 
the whole file can be one frame. The original code implements seeking by 
starting at the beginning of the closest frame (which is the start of the 
file in this case) and decodes and drops all unneeded samples. Not very 
nice if you want to seek from 5:10 to 5:00 in a six minute file.
