I'd be surprised if no-one had run into this before, it seems like the 
kind of thing that might crop up in a number of use cases. I actually 
noticed it while following along with the "How to paint a bird song" 
part of the manual (the whole of the animals.scm file is awesome, by the 
way), trying to select a section of the "steady state" of the tweet to 
do a frequency analysis on, and I got confused when what looked steady 
didn't sound steady and consequently I wasn't sure whether to trust the 
output of the FFT.

Thanks for considering it for a future version, though.
