Yes, with that scheme we would change bandwidth for increased time. Kind of
like how we can send a picture in SSTV, but it takes many seconds. However,
I was proposing first doubling the speed (but using some sort of magic to
keep the pitch constant) before slowing it down. So a 5 second message
would first be sped up to 2.5 seconds, but holding the pitch constant. The
2.5 second message would then be played at half speed, getting back to the
original 5 seconds.
