If other people think it makes sense then yes, I think we should probably move the autodetection code to run at wine startup.  The code thus far is very much non-portable so while it should work under linux I'm not sure about other os's.  I've considered also trying to dynamically load the sound libraries and use their library calls to detect the sound libraries.  Any improvments or suggestions are more than welcome.  The autodetection works well for me though so I'd imagine it would work for most linux end-users.
