Comparing Win32 audio

There are several different cvs DLL’s available to try different methods
of audio playback on Win32. I’m interested in feedback:

SDL-baseline.dll - unmodified SDL 1.0.4 prerelease DLL
SDL-priority.dll - Audio thread has high priority
SDL-notify.dll - Audio uses DirectX 6 DirectSoundNotify when available
SDL-priority-notify.dll - audio has high priority and uses notification

These DLLs append debug information to sdl-debug.txt in the current directory.

See ya!
