[music-dsp] who else needs a fractional delay.

Talking about tempo-synced delays following tempo changes, something that 
the end user often expects & thinks to be easy, I wonder if the best method 
(afterall it would make no sense for an echo to timestretch) isn't to manage 
a pool of delays, creating a new delay line once the tempo changes, 
destroying it once its feedback has faded out. Anyone managed to build 
something like this?
