Well I've only just started looking over it (and completely agree re the
#ifdefs) so not really done anything yet. Is there a better -sink module
you'd recommend as a starting point?

Yeah I see what you mean. I'll see how it goes as this part is the final
hurdle and wont be attempted until I get the actual sink loading OK!
Having only started reading the raop_play code, I'm getting worried I've
bitten off more than I can chew with all it's RTP and callbacks etc. but
I'll still take a good crack at it!
