Since it is not speed-critical that may change things, but I proposed
this on purpose because
1) it avoids one loop in the joint-stereo case
2) memset is called with larger values, thus newer libc implementations
can make better use of optimizations for large copies in addition to
reducing the call overhead (that was a thinko, it can still be had with
having the memset in the function).
3) I am still lobbying to have someone implement a bytestream_fill_byte
function which would merge the memset and increment, which would make
the code look "good enough" if not even clearer than with the memset
"hidden" in there (well, that was the idea anyway).
