SDL supports the "I'm a bucket in a chain" API, but in theory it could
get pretty slow. :)

It's much faster to tweak the DMA buffer directly.

Of course, there are advantages to being able to play your own MIDI sound
files during your favorite game... :)

NIN while playing Maelstrom anybody? :)

See ya!
