The ALSA project (http://www.alsa-project.org) gets loaner hardware and
complete documentation for writing drivers from RME for all their
products.  They are extremely cooperative.  As soon as the PCMCIA
hammerfallish thing is commercially available, the ALSA folks will
probably start on the driver.  All those who perform or do on-location
recording with Linux are eagerly awaiting this development.  Of course,
once there is an ALSA driver, Pd will work with it automatically, assuming
Pd gets ported to ALSA 0.9.x.

Considering that two years ago we all felt lucky to have drivers for our
Sound Blasters, all is well.
