I've been assuming we can optionally do the editing/splicing/encoding 
ourselves, so for my submissions I've so far been handling it on my end,
partly to save labor at the HPR side and partly to indulge the schtick of 
having a couple of seconds of "prologue" and "epilogue" audio before and
after the rest of the recording (including the HPR intro and outro).

(If that's frowned upon, somebody tell me and I'll stop doing it...I've
got several episode concepts I'm planning to work on soon.)
