:) Thanks
I have to add that writing this driver was only  possible due to
the work of Winfried Ritsch, who wrote the mother of all Hammerfall
drivers. It has been the base of my driver and the ALSA Hammerfall
driver. Winfried was actually the one who brought the first high
quality soundcard to the Linux community.

Yes, we were hoping that portaudio would solve some of these problems,
but if you take a look at the homepage of Josh Haberman, who wrote
the ALSA support for portaudio, you will see that he had a hart time
too trying to get everything under one hat.
