[alsa-devel] alsa-lib has anyone ever looked at taking it cross platform?

This would kinda make logical sence.

Alsa-lib plugin system in theory should be able to take any kind sound
output under it.   Simplify development of all applications on top of
it.  If alsa was cross platform why would you use something else as a
middle body wrapper when you port.

Windows and Mac support could be done as plugins.

Or is there something that is in the alsa-lib that is a problem?

Its all about reducing distance between application and hardware and
reduce amount of coding.
