Sound concerns

Hi all,

I believe most oconcerns about OpenAL have been addressed. One of the 
open questions was whether midi and wave would be synced. And I think 
the most likely answer is that they aren't, even on windows. On windows 
winmm midi drivers use winmm timeGetTime or QueryPerformanceCounter for 
DirectMusic. Sample accurate wave is used to sync with midi, by using 
exclusive mode or the asio model.

If there are any other open concerns, apart from packaging, let me know, 
since I really want to get dsound openal merged. :)
If there are still concerns that are open I would like to know, 
especially if they affect wasapi which is defined in 
include/audioclient.idl and audiopolicy.idl
