The original csound code is under a educational+personal use only
license. It is not GPL compliant, nor does it come close to matching to
Open Source Definition(TM).

There are "clean room" implementations of most of the interesting csound
opcodes that were made as part of the now defunct Quasimodo project.
These were salvaged from Quasimodo and turned into LADSPA plugins. I
don't remember who did this, but any decent LADSPA plug in collection
will include them.

I think it might be more interesting to make csound and pd interface to
JACK. No Windows version of JACK, however. Then there's also that
control-stream vrs. audio-stream issue.
