Thanks for your input.

Yes, they can do that easily. I do not expect them to, though: IMHO, they
would have deleted/archived the concat file along with the encode script.

If that is fine with everyone, I will push the patches as is in a few days.
Extra probing can be added later if it is done with a good
usefulness-complexity trade-off.

After that, I intend to work on seeking.
