Ken Hornstein would be a good candidate!  But is there
an acceptable sound driver architecture?

How can I help?

I believe you will find more than one volunteer but someone
in the core group has to coordinate, provide feedback and
make sure things integrate.  And yes, exhort/motivate/push
occasionally.  Somebody also needs to run regression tests.

I think there is a pressing need for involving more people
in the maintenance&growth of netbsd.  I fear the day you and
a couple others in the core group decide to move on to
better things NetBSD will be no more or in a coma or much
worse, split in more camps (just like 386BSD did).

Sorry about the meta discussion.
