Does the fact that it's an external encoder make a difference here - i.e.
you can say "if you want to use its specialised features, use it directly
rather than through FFmpeg"? If FFmpeg had a native MP3 encoder would an
option to make it behave like this be more acceptable?? Just curious. :)
It's really quite useful - one of the reasons I've heard given as an
advantage of MP2 over MP3 to justify its continued use in professional
audio environments (radio playout software and so on) is that it's easier
to split and combine files than with MP3. Disabling the bit reservoir
neutralises this advantage.
But fair enough. I can work around it in other ways, just thought this
would be more elegant.
