 * This design is less flexible than running our own thread:
 * - We have no control over the thread:
 * - It cannot block, and it has to run for a shorter amount of time than the
 *   buffer it is going to fill, or an under-run is going to occur (short burst
 *   of silence in the final audio output).
 * - We can't know for sure when the callback function is going to be called
 *   (although we compute an estimation so we can schedule video frames)
 * - Creating and shutting the thread down is a blocking operation, that can
 *   take _seconds_ in some cases (because IPC has to be set up, and
 *   sometimes hardware components are involved and need to be warmed up)
 * - We have no control on how much audio we generate, we have to return exactly
 *   the number of frames asked for by the callback. Since for the Web Audio
 *   API, we have to do block processing at 128 frames per block, we need to
 *   keep a little spill buffer to store the extra frames.
