Btw, I just tried this for the first time, and I must say it is pretty
excellent - small, does the job and is easy to install (assuming you are 
using a 2.6 kernel)! 

Even better would be if we managed to get this into the kernel tree.
There seems to be a few simple LSM modules already included, so I guess 
it's not impossible.

PS One feature request: some way to turn the realtime mode off. As 
   2.6 doesn't allow to remove modules, there's currently no way
   to disable and/or change realtime mode settings. 

 Audio software for Linux!
