When using two instances of Linrad you are normally running
in a graphical environment, X11 or MS Windows. In both cases
it is possible to open the same soundcard output from two
different programs.

I think output channel mixing is supplied by the device driver
under Microsoft. Creative normally supplies it, but some of
the others do not.

When pointed to it, it seems natural to allow the user to
select "no audio output." He might want to save the audio in
a disk file or just ignore it. In case it turns out to be
easy I will include such a feature.
