It's very probably that this will happen quickly. I'm about (ok, might
take a few more weeks) to release a new GLtron version, which is
featured in a few major distributions (SuSE, mandrake, debian),
so maybe they'll include SDL_sound when I make it a dependancy.

Also, moving SDL_mixer-1.3 to use SDL_sound would certainly speed things
up. The current SDL_mixer seriously suffers from the inability to
load mp3/ogg files as voices, and the inability to use RWops.
