I'm recording the realplayer streams off the beeb using vsound
<>.  I've written a perl wrapper
automating the recording, I'd like to set it up so that checks to see if
the output file is truncated, has long silent gaps etc and if has,  sleep
for an hour and has one more go. I mentioned pop and crackle because it
would be fun to check and flag other distortions more manual evaluation.

Audio::Data looks like a much more interesting soluton than
Audio::FindChunks.  Thanks Andy!
