Re: PPlay Release

As a matter of fact I'm ver far along with PSound, thanks to help from Mr.
Burns and Mr. Smith.   I'm so used to designing simple APIs to fit _MY_
needs of the moment, that it was culture shock to do this!  But, I am
working as time permits (I'm quite busy being a high school student at the
moment because I'm studying for a test that I need to score high on to get
into college with...biology ugh!)

I think something constructive is being done...and liscensing is necesary!
Even with open source one may steal code!  To me though, I think X would be
the ebst choice, but I would be perfectly happy with LGPL.
