How to preload sound files

Thanks for all your suggestions, unfortunately the sequence of sound files 
is dynamically generated, so splicing them together ahead of time won't work.

I did just try a test where instead of using one player to sequentially 
play through the files, I tried interleaving the list between two 
players.  I load up player 1 with the first sound file and player 2 with 
the second.  In player 1's stopPlaying handler, I start Player 2 and then 
set the filename of player 1 to the third sound file.

This does give me better performance.  I'm not sure if this is sufficient, 
or if dynamically creating as players as I have sound files, and then 
firing them one by one, would give me even more performance.
