The point is that being forced to create an intermediate file (SND resource)
eliminates the possibility of incremental output. Data conversion is fine, but
why should I have to wait until the last bit of the file is written to play the
first bit? My program synthesizes the waveform in almost real-time; if the full
waveform is half an hour in duration, I don't want to have to wait a half hour
to hear it.
