well, thomas was probably right about this, but since pd supports all 3
api's for linux audio hardware, it's not really good, if some hardware
can only be accessed by specific api's ... (the hdsp only with jack /
oss, some usb audio devices only with oss...)

since jack became the standard, it is probably the way to go, but as
long as alsa is still supported by pd, we should try to support most
cards including the hdsp ... (i hope, thomas finds his patch, so that we
can add it to the cvs...)

the patch, frank wrote about, was only in miller's branch, not in the
cvs. i added it and it works fine now ... thanks for the hint ...

The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn,
burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across
the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and
everybody goes "Awww!"
