Fine tuning for the streaming.

Hi,

when listening to a radio-stream, I do hit the pause-button quiet frequently (when the phone rings or a colleague enters the room).
On resuming the playback, the playback of the buffered content starts immediately. After a few seconds, the buffer is empty and playback stops, while the buffer starts refilling.
Wouldn't it be better if Winamp started to refill the buffer as soon as the playback is resumed?
The timeline now seems to be:
1.) Resume playback
2.) Play the content buffered before the playback was paused
3.) Buffer runs empty
4.) Begin to refill the buffer
5.) Continue playback

The better approach would be:
1.) Resume playback
2.) Connect to the online-source again and fill the buffer with the new content, while the previously buffered content still plays.
3.) Buffer is full again before the old content has been played entirely
4.) Switch to the new content without interrupting playback.
