I have no problem with the idea of pre-fetching, but enclosures are a terrible implementation of that idea. I don't emit enclosures in the Webjay RSS feeds for that reason -- among other problems, it could create excessive load on MP3 hosts with little gained. Grumet's quite a clueful guy, though, and I know he's aware of the problems to be solved. - Lucas
