We have no contact with Creative about their drivers yet, thus no plan
for merging as now.
If we need to work on their stuff by ourselves, it means essentially
that we fork.  That's what I'd like to avoid unless really needed.

So, give them pressure to make a contact with us.  Give my address
again, and convince them that it'll be the way to go...
