Thought about the spinoff thing, it was a descision made while
underexcitement from taking ont he Sound and Input projects, idiotic
immaturirty kicking in once again. My apologies. :-)

it when i wrote that.  I went looking for some USB info and found the page
for it, they look like they've come a ways too.

Yes, my i had udnerstood formt he webpage or somewhere else you guys were
using mesa so that is a misunderstanding on my part. Sorry. :-) Honestly,
someone needs to work on optimizing it though.
