Heh.... uh, well... yeah. In fact applications that manipulate the media
stream in any way in my mind are in fact 'channels' and should be
bridged to the incoming channel and not talk to it directly, but that's
a much larger change and maybe not even a welcome one :-)

If this is going to require a background thread anyway to implement this
functionality, I'd rather that be a thread servicing a single-channel
bridge than just a channel-attached thread, because if the the channel
does end up being bridged everything will already be setup for it.
