That's the cool thing about this list. People get a chance to shout really
loudly about things they care about, and it all gets taken into
consideration by Paul. When I first came on the list, I couldn't stop
talking about Emu this and Emu that. Lo and behold, the Lag Processor module
will have all the features of the Emu module and more, because I had a big
mouth! So your voice will definitely be heard...
