I still want the API to support seeks to exact frames.

eg when I build some GUI that allows the user to click on a button that says
"explosion shot 1 at 00:31:02.15" then I want the player to seek to
00:31:02.15 exactly and not to say, 00:31:02.01 simply b/c that's where a
keyframe happens to be.


I'm personally a fan of a heuristic approach where the first seek from
> a user goes to a keyframe while subsequent seeks soon after the first
> are all exact.  But this is a user interface thing, and not really a
> question of what the API should provide.
