The ALSA code, yes - the playout code, not yet. I need to write some
test code for it first. I made a few changes to the code - firstly to
give them correct names/modules, but a few others:

- print -> log.msg
- wrapped a lot of the log.msg() in the playout in a module level DEBUG.
At some point in the future I'll roll out a better debugging
infrastructure, so that this sorta stuff can be turned on and off
- made playout underrun return '' rather than an all-zero sound. I
also want to look at possibly playing white-noise (with the energy level
set to the same as the previous packet). Apparently this gives a higher
user feedback score.

Yep, that's certainly do-able.

If you have an IRC client, there's also #shtoom on irc.freenode.net.
