Just to confirm - I tried playing the file back with ffplay and artefacts 
were not present there - very good :)

Sorry I wasn't clear - low bitrate/filesize *is* important for me, but I 
also need to be able to split the audio stream cleanly between files. 
Hence my suggestion that the ability to disable the bit reservoir through 
the libavcodec API would be very useful.
