I was talking to the Vance character from lokigames about it, and it
doesn't do networked sound at the moment, but he reckons that it
could. So I'm plinking at it at the moment, got two possibilities. A)
make AL output to an esd port and send that data across to an esd
daemon. B) split the library so that it natively has network support.
I like B because A is a real kludge. Problem with B is that its yet
another networked sound solution. But I might as well investigate the
feasiability of it all, keep me occupied for a while.
