What do you think about trying to find a  common structure amongst the
various audio-related  distributions  and/or package sets   out there?
I'm thinking about AGNULA/DeMuDi, AGNULA/RehMuDi, the Mandrake project
I can't manage to remember  the name of, SuSE  audio packages (is it a
port of PlanetCCRMA?  I'm not sure), Debian 'stock', and so on..

I'm a  big fan   of harmonization (at  least in   this field) if  it's
possible.  Of course,  I'm not talking about eliminating  differences.
I just  think  that if  we manage to   find a common way   to organize
applications, users  won't  feel too  surprised  when  they  happen to
switch from a distribution to another.
