Cannot agree the more! :-)

I'm not sure I've understood. There will be a /proc pseudofile that I
can read and write and that alters the values of period and buffer?

When you will release, the /proc file will be also present in the
normal build (eg: no debug build)?

The best for the users would be having a standard (from the official
ALSA distribution, not hacked by me) alsa driver that they can control
around the Skype bug, eg using a config param or (if you like better)
using the /proc interface. In a while there will be a prepackaged
build for CentOS, and all them will be happy and feel safe :-).

Many many thanks,
