 Heh. Superb that it will be getting a rewrite to use the myth audio output

 Such a summary would be great, but, unfortunately, I'm not the person to 
write it (at least not in a few minute). Isaac did all the real work at the 
beginning of mythmusic, and I think even his code was largely based on 
another project (http://www.mq3.org/). 

 The core decoder/outputEvents/viz logic has not really changed very much from 
the early versions. I have occasionaly understood it long enough to write 
against it (visualizations, GUI, etc), but it's not really my code.

 If you're really bogged down, I'd be happy to try wade through it and it 
explain it as best I can, but it would be a fairly significant undertaking on 
my part.
