Subject Re: Media API on Android

Hey Simon,

I've taken a look at the Media API as well. I submitted a patch addressing seekTo behaviour,
but it only fixed streaming media. I have another patch to fix both streaming and local media
Generally speaking, one thing I found frustrating was a lack of explicitly defined behaviour
for the various states of a Media object. Developing a state transition diagram, then insuring
the behaviour conforms to it would be a good way to start.

I've grabbed back a few issues which I was actively working on half complete solutions for,
and I'll submit a patch today/tomorrow, in particular CB-1129.
