I dunno. It seems that recent releases from the likes of Bjork or the 
Beasties have been designed specifically for headphones. Most people 
play with the settings on their home system anyway to get the sound they 
like and some of them also have built in room effects which accentuate 
the speakers.

It sounds like your software would be a very useful addition for the pop 
music marketer running a Linux env. In that case I would recommend 
making a gui for your prospective user base.

  Apparently upon the beginning of the barrage, the donkey broke 
discipline and panicked, toppling the cart. At that point, the rockets 
disconnected from the timer, leaving them strewn around the street. 
Tethered to the now toppled cart, the donkey was unable to escape before 
the arrival of U.S. troops.
