this is *desperately* needed ...

in my travels, i found the gemu mixer (http://www.roadfeldt.com) which
is described as thus:

hmmm ... not sure about the author's assumptions on what one would want
to do in regards to routing, though :\

i haven't been able to get this working, though - just get a segfault
when trying to launch it - so i don't know how far it goes to making
emu10k1 card options clear.

i would be interested in helping with some of the graphic design needs
of any gui, and anything else i can get my head around ...

if anyone on the list has some links to info on how to build User
Interfaces/GUI's, it would be much appreciated!
