It'll affect the object multiple times... for 'c-setpos' this is not a
problem, but for 'c-fw' and 'c-rw' definitely a bad thing, but at the same
time difficult to avoid.

D'oh! :) Fixed in 2.0.1

Yup, the xxx-index-select and xxx-select do the same thing.

These are good suggestions... -> added to the todo-list.

Yup, for setpos, forward, rewing and getpos, cs-xxx is same as xxx.

Nope, just in audio objects and chainsetups.

Well, could be implemented, but not that necessary. In most practical
cases, cs-get-length and aio-get-length should do the job.

Thanks for writing the summary! This nicely wraps up the EIAM cleanup

 Audio software for Linux!
