Subject: [ecasound] C API for ecasound

I've been playing around with the idea of having a separate C API for
ecasound. So something like the aRts C-API (libartsc.so).
This library (libecasoundc.so) would have a init() call, which would
initialize the ecasound base system (create all the necessary C++ objects,
etc). After that, you could pass commands to the ecasound engine using
normal C function calls. Similarly, you could are more stuff to the
library. The C-API library would access the C++ class, and make their
functionality available for people using the C-API. Here's a few
void eca_send_command(const char* cmd);
[ ... etc ]
... and of course, making Python, Perl, Eiffel, whatever bindings
to this library would be quite easy. I'm not sure how much time I could
spare for this project, but I have a feeling that this would useful.
What do you think?
