Currently we only allow eviction of data that is behind the current play position.

It's possible to accumulate considerable amounts of data ahead of the current position (usually by seeking backwards in small increments), which won't be evicted by the current code.

Seeking backwards will results in new decoders for each seek, so we can evict entire decoders and prevent this from using excessive amounts of memory.
We prefer to evict data as far away from the current playback position as possible, and this will help with that (in some cases).
