OK... Launchpad fixed. Silly me. :) https://launchpad.net/~bunz now exists.

Thanks for the overview. I'll get into it this weekend. 

Are you suggesting that we load sounds into memory any time the memory *can* 
be allocated regardless of its size, or streaming if the sound file is greater 
than a certain arbitrary size? ie. What's your feeling of the parameters for 
making the decision between loading in one chunk and streaming?
