I have offered my time for this project. I'm still waiting for the dust 
to settle on the best way to present the data. A compatibility matrix is 
not out of the question. However from my experience with alsa matrix it 
is hard to keep it up to date. I would like to take things a step 
further an automate that process if at all possible.

In regards to the issue with specifiying UI's I thin the best way around 
the problem is to provide template code that people can work from. It 
doesn't have to be the most flexible method that is known. It just has 
to present a simple and elegant approach to the issue.

Having a template for every language and tool set that can be used to 
build an ui that a busy but interested developer can quickly slot into 
their own project with minimum tweaking will be a major step towards 
opening up compatibility and getting more applications and ui's built.
