Well, no big loss there. It'll be nice when it's done but I'm still in
much better shape than I was 24 hours ago. I must say I'm really QUITE
impressed with pulse so far. Having lived through OSS and ESD I hadn't
thought it possible to have a good, working sound setup in Linux. But pa
has thankfully proven me wrong. :)

I'll take a look at the subversion repository to see if I can contribute
anything in the way of the channel remapper, but considering I've never
done any audio coding before it'll be a long shot. Thanks again for all
the help.
