That is a driver, regardless of whether it runs in kernel or user space. 
And while programming a DAC in DOS for a Sound Blaster compatible was not
hard, writing drivers for a dozen chipsets to run on a half dozen kinds of
hardware is a little more complicated.

I realize that this isn't until v2 in your plan, but regardless, it's a
waste of time. ALSA would beat your implementation, both in diversity and
speed. When you get to your v2 plans, if you really want to write sound
drivers, head over to ALSA.
