i wonder if this isnt going a bit too far in the "what if" category

but if we really want to support the case that new streams get
detected during a seek, that would either require a callback or
simply redoing the seek, could even be along the lines of returning
EAGAIN from the seek function indicating new streams have been found
and the user app has to decide which it wants to consider

Many things microsoft did are stupid, but not doing something just because
microsoft did it is even more stupid. If everything ms did were stupid they
would be bankrupt already.
