Well, I DID say that I just made a cursory glance at the sources.  :-)

Someone on the OpenAL list indicated that all one had to do was set the 
number of speakers to four- will that work or does someone need to add some 
additional code to support four channel sound?  As I said on the OpenAL list, 
if we can't have hardware acceleration, at least we could use the software 
effects more effectively.
