Yep.  People who don't use UNIX miss the point of source code,
sometimes. :-)

And you can send sound out to your Supercharger if you run things
that way.  I do it under FreeBSD and the sound devices are the same
these days, I think.  (I sent those patches to the list about a
year ago, didn't I?)

I haven't tried to do that under Mac OS X yet.  They don't seem to
have UNIX-style audio devices there, but if they've got something
analogous to NeXT's SoundKit, I can do that.  Hadn't yet because
I actually use the sound on my Mac and NeXTs, unlike my BSD machines.
