We can do some kind of zero padding. Hmm... it doesn't combine with the 
loop stuff :-(
Did you think, the later is useful, anyway? Is it used in games? Perhaps 
some repeating sound,
like walking, raining, machine-gun fire or something like that. I think 
I've seen a similar function
in the win32 api.
