Yeah, that was the one hitch. OpenAL isn't as kitchen-sink-ey as fmod.
Audio streaming would need help from somewhere else. GStreamer is the
way to go on Linux especially if its going to be used for video anyway,
as it would allow users to easily slot in an mp3 codec at runtime, but
doesn't do Windows and OSX much good. May just have to live with
different platform specific backends, Windows Media on Win32, Quicktime
on OSX, as that leaves getting an MP3 codec license
Microsoft/Apple/Fluendo's problem. Unless Linden Lab actually has its
own license...
