Minus the extinction part. ;)

c't is the biggest "serious" computer magazine in Germany (one of the
biggest even in Europe). *Everyone* reads it, and that includes lots
of non-audio users and "consumers". (Btw: when Fernando and I did our
rainy Black Forest tour de force the day before Linux Audio
Conference, I could show him one c't reader in the train to the
forest. They are everwhere in Germany. ;)

I had to and did warn users of that level, that Snd almost for sure is
not what they are used to and that they *will* have to do lots of
documentation reading and even learn at least some Scheme/Lisp/Ruby.
Dave's or Kjetil's configurations are invaluable for those users.

Still Snd feels and probably is very fast compared to the others. So
if dinosaur, then it surely is one of the predators as Dave remarked.
Remember, that the first mammals were very small.
