I mean porting audio stuff is rather simple already (I've ported maplay
and splay w/o any trouble, thanks, Lennart !), but if the changes
to make API SunOS compatible are small, there is no reason for not beeing
compatible IMHO. BTW - I like very much this structure-passing-ioctl system,
much more than Linux's special-ioctl-for-anything one.

So - I vote for SunOS audio compatiblity, as much as it would be
possible and wise.

It is better never to have been born.  But who among us has such luck?
One in a million, perhaps.
