Yes, I added it for Linrad-02.44:-)

This version is another one with significant changes that will 
need careful testing. I found a bug that has been presend since 
02-00 (multithreading) I have made the output routine faster
for high sampling rates. Now the output thread that moves data 
from a Linrad buffer to the output device may be busy when
the operator reconfigures the memory due to an output format
change. Before, due to the slow speed it never happaned
(or seldomly,) the output thread was always waiting on a semaphore
when the operator asked for a memory reorganization. Linrad-02-44
is re-structured and many things that were introduced to take'
care of bugs in early versions of ALSA and OSS are now removed.

The arrow keys you asked for will be a bit delayed becayse the
structural change needs testing under several older kernels and
sound systems. I want Linrad to continue to behave well on
older platforms where the latest sound drivers do not work.
Such testing is slow....
