That is a very misleading statement. Jamin is a 'CPU and memory
hungry beast' not because it uses FFTs, but because it uses the
wrong algorithm in the first place (which in turn requires the
use of a high overlap factor to hide the resulting problems).
It's not a matter of inefficent coding, but of failed design.


A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
