Thanks Tanu,

I'm on something of a deadline writing a thesis before moving country, so I
won't be able to get back to this for probably about two months. But I
don't plan on abandoning it since I use this functionality daily to stream
audio in my house.

I'll implement querying of latency offsets and bump the version number to
whatever it is at the time I get back to it.

Thanks for looking at it,
