It is impressively fast to index, which leads me to suspect it's cheating
(don't sample at all, just multilpy bitrate by size - header).
Unfortunately, I don't know Perl. It would be very useful if someone (I've
copied this back to the mailing list) who does know Perl code look at this
code and give some hints as to what it's doing.
