It might be a good idea for mobile phones, but I doubt that it becomes
usable soon for Linux audio and maybe it never would fit our
requirements. Feel free to subscribe to the mailing list. I'm still

Just for Sonic Visualiser it could be avoided by

  git checkout abcdef1

IOW by just compiling a dedicated commit from git, but it much likely
would break other software sharing the same dependency.


"Michael" described Floyd as "an idiot savant", and added, "Give him
any two numbers, and he can multiply them in his head, just like that."
Homer, testing Floyd, said, "Five times nine", and Floyd instantly
responded "Forty-five", which impressed Homer.
