I'd have to agree with you guys on this one.  One thing I can think of 
that I would like to take on (given enough time to do it all) is create 
a wiki page that I can use to document all of the fixme's, warn's and 
err's that occur in the source, and then ask anyone that is contributing 
code to update it when they add/remove one of those.  For example, it 
might be helpful to a user to know that "err:midi:OSS_MidiInit ioctl on 
midi info for device 0 failed" is more of a fixme than an error, and 
exactly what that "gibberish" means, so that they dont go reporting it 
(making a dupe report), etc..
