Usually, a test instantiates a device and plays back one recording. 
However, it's conceivable that a test would instantiate one device and 
play back two separate recordings in sequence. Or one recording twice. 
Or one recording through two separate devices. The idea here is to 
create a wrapper object around the devices and the recordings separately 
so they can be interchanged.

There's no real runtime overhead, and code wise there shouldn't be much 
overhead. The code is as simple as:

Device device("device.prop");
Recording recording("device.recording");

As I'm typing this I'm realizing that the API doesn't really allow for 
one recording, multiple devices (without having to instantiate two 
recording objects). I'll think about refactoring it a little.
