I guess it's best that I'll continue to develop the core parts of
ecasound. On the other hand, writing new audio io-device/file-format
classes, effects and controller sources should be easy as all you have
to care about is the appropriate virtual base class (AUDIO_IO_DEVICE,

Writing a new user interface is even easier as you can now use ecasound's
engine by linking your program to libecasound library. All
programs in the ecasound (1.5.x) dist-package (ecasound, qtecasound,
ecatools_*) are already built this way. There isn't much documentation
yet... partly because the library interface may still need some
changes, but I'll start to work on it sooner or later...

This is a good point. I'll put cvs on my todo-list...
