That would not be ideal; it selects the last audio track by iterating
over the whole collection.

We have better tools available:

MediaStream.prototype.getAudioTracks = function() {
    return this.getTracks().filter(function(track) {
        return track.type === 'audio';

Whether that is provided by the browser, or needs to be polyfilled, I
don't care.  getTracks() is the key interface.

How important is it for application developers to be able to mess with
the contents of their MediaStreams anyway?
