I think it's pretty safe to say that having AL-like features (MIDI
friendly, elastic audio) would be the "killer app" for Linux audio.  I
really can't think of anything else that Linux audio *can't* do.
Hell, we've conquered the VST issue, synthesis, midi, algorithmic
music programming, patch-type programming...is there really anything
else?  (well, yea, there is, but you see my point...)

The bigger question is, how do people like myself who cannot code
assist in making this happen?  I'm certainly willing to pay money and
encourage others to do the same, however I would like to know that my
money is going towards something specific that I want.

Any suggestions?
