LPC: Linux audio: it's a mess

The devil lies in the details. It's a lot of small issues that make compat difficult. In addition, some fundamental parts, like the reliance on the classic period-based playback model is a weakness that libsydney does not expose. Not exposing periods will greatly increase compat with glitch-free and with network setups. Finally, libsydney allows clients to set all kinds of properties for a stream that make it especially useful for desktop sound servers. (i.e. setting icons for a stream, and so on...)
But there are more things.
