In case  I've not been clear, the way xastir does it is great, namely  
one download from findU, and from there live data from the stream.  
This is absolutely no problem, it is those programs that hit findU on  
an ongoing, regular basis that are causing problems. Single hits  
initiated by user command (e.g. starting a program) are fine.
