Feature Request: Variable Playback Speed

Given that Treehouse already uses an HTML5 player I'd love to see a variable playback speed control (like what you can find in VLC). Youtube, Pluralsight, and various other sites around the web have players with variable playback speed, as do virtually all desktop clients and podcatcher/player type apps (anyone that listens to podcasts on a regular basis is almost certainly well acquainted with how much time can be saved by listening to content at 1.5, 2, or even 3x speed).

Would love to see this on Treehouse, so a big +1 for this feature from me :)
