What for you is a waste of ressources is for me the main appeal in having a
_slim_ hardware device - flexibility.

I just do not care if the sb uses 1.7% of my bandwidth or 0.2% and if your
server can't take oggdec+flac without breaking a sweat it probably freezes
solid for an hour whenever you hit rescan anyway.

We aren't going to reach agreement on this one - let's drop it.
