I think have to define a interface for sound drivers in the way we currently have them. Whether or not we implement more than one is another topic. If OpenAL works I am fine with just a wineopenal driver *if the openal calls are properly separated from the rest of the code* . I don't like the idea of rewriting our wasapi implementation if we have to go away from openal for some reason.
