Ahhh.  Pity.

Hrm.  Interesting.  Isn't having a source of $X kb/s MP3 and a target of
$Y kb/s MP3 the same as having a source of ogg/vorbis and a target of
MP3?  I guess you are saying it's not.

Is this a function of RB solely or does RB hand off the decision making
and action of source->destination to something else like gstreamer?  I
guess the underlying question here is, whos work is fixing this and how
much work is it?

Indeed.  I am glad you see that the same way I do.  Of course, should
HAL provide some indications of max. bitrates, etc. the preference
should not be allowed to exceed that, but this is more or less
