My current understanding is that, yes, we want it to happen. The main
issue is people who know how having the time to make it happen.
If memory serves, Adrian knows the jack code and upstream the best of
anyone here. Reinhard knows about library magic stuff from working on
ffmpeg. Jonas knows lots of cdbs magic that might be helpful.

Are there others on the team paying attention with time, interest and
knowledge not mentioned above?
