No, you can set filenames during run time, but I meant you start with a
stack that contains many players, and assign the filenames at startup.  That
way there is minimal load delay when playing sounds -- the sounds are
already assigned to each player and stay assigned.  But with big sounds
(music) there will likely be some delay for loading.
