Cool. You will have PortaCello4 to play with, now with OpenAL and 
running about 400% faster thanks to the marvel of OpenGL display lists. 
I am just cleaning up a little the integration of groovy sounds into 
Cello, then it is time to re-port to Lispworks/win32. Unless I spend a 
day or two on de-studlification.

Please note that it looks as if we could architect quite a fancy 
subframework to support all the OpenAL capabilities (not that it is 
anywhere near the complexity of OpenGL), but I have done Just Enough to 
get some sound out of the thing without completely embarrassing myself 
(ie, it's nothing fancy).
