Hi Kai,

Glad to hear about this. I hope to revisit my python-eci scripts in the
next weeks and hopefully, finally, get my ecasound based streaming
internet audio installation up and running this summer. So, this is
pretty good timing. :)

I'm just back from LAC2008 and have some post-conf work to take care of,
but hopefully I'll have time to look at this ecasound stuff in the next
