I'm the developer of OpenAL Soft <http://kcat.strangesoft.net/openal.html>,
which is becoming the implementation to use on Linux and other Unices (as the
old Sample Implementation is deprecated/not maintained anymore). Though I'm
not really hands-in with Creative or anything.. just a hobbyist developer
making a Linux lib on his own time, who gives out his ideas.

I would like to see DirectSound(3D) running properly on OpenAL, even if as a
seperate project (eg. my DSound->OpenAL DLL project). It's not up to me
whether such a thing would get into Wine or not, though.
