OK ... first round of testing is completed. The stuff that works (not just
Planet CCRMA!!) is in https://github.com/znmeb/AlgoCompSynth

1. SuperCollider seems to have changed packaging - for now my script isn't
getting executed.
2. Somewhere along the line (F19 I think, maybe F18) Common Music
disappeared. Can it come back?
3. ChucK / miniAudicle from Planet CCRMA aren't making sounds on my GNOME 3
desktop with a USB headset. Recompiling from the latest upstream source
me sound - the trick is to use the 'pulse' option when you do the
'make'. You probably need three versions now - ALSA, Jack and Pulse(audio)
to cover all the bases.

Wish list:
1. Get Common Music back
2. Slippery Chicken - algorithmic composition in Lisp (

I want to package IanniX, Impro-Visor and AthenaCL for Fedora but don't
know if I'll have the time to go through the lengthy training / acceptance
process. They install fine from source so it's not like I'm losing anything
by not having them in Planet CCRMA or Fedora.
