Hi all,
    Yeah I noticed that bigtime when I got my OpenAL and ALSA setup 
right. Like when you use the cursor to click on the options in the main 
menu, the resulting sound is poly, but you don't know that if you're 
using the OSS drivers. I'm not sure but I don't think you hear poly when 
using the ALSA-OSS emulation driver either.
