Hello everyone,

I've been working on a PulseAudio driver for Wine for a couple of days
now. It was suggested I should drop a note on to wine-devel, so here I
am. :) I also cc'd pulseaudio-discuss. (And subscribed to both.)

I personally use PulseAudio for everything on my desktop already, but
support in Wine was lacking. PulseAudio provides lots of compatibility
with other APIs, like OSS, ALSA and ESD. I only managed to get OSS
emulation working to a reasonable extent with Wine. I decided it would
be a fun project to write a native PulseAudio driver instead.

Right now I'm trying to get very basic output working, without real
support for DirectSound. Using the winmm_test.exe.so testcase from Wine
I already managed to produce beeps using my driver, which is pretty cool
for just a couple of days work. :)

If anyone feels like a chat, I read both these lists now and will try to
respond. I can also be found on Freenode in #winehackers and #pulseaudio
as 'stephank'.
