 * This class is useful for estimating rates of data passing through
 * some channel. The idea is that activity on the channel "starts"
 * and "stops" over time. At certain times data passes through the
 * channel (usually while the channel is active; data passing through
 * an inactive channel is ignored). The GetRate() function computes
 * an estimate of the "current rate" of the channel, which is some
 * kind of average of the data passing through over the time the
 * channel is active.
 * All methods take "now" as a parameter so the user of this class can
 * control the timeline used.

   Provides the ability to open, read and seek into a media stream
   (audio, video). Handles the underlying machinery to do range
   requests, etc as needed by the actual stream type. Instances of
   this class must be created on the main thread. 

   Most methods must be called on the main thread only. Read, Seek and
   Tell must only be called on non-main threads. In the case of the Ogg
   Decoder they are called on the Decode thread for example. You must
   ensure that no threads are calling these methods once Close is called.

   Instances of this class are explicitly managed. 'delete' it when done.

  // closing the listener but an outstanding byte range request
  // creating a new one. They run on the same thread so no explicit
  // synchronisation is required. The byte range request checks for
  // the cancel flag and does not create a new channel or listener if
  // we are cancelling.
  // The default strategy does not do any seeking - the only issue is
  // a blocked read which it handles by causing the listener to close
  // the pipe, as per the http case.
