I've only skim-read your proposal and the other mails, but being able to 
use nodes for audio would be really nice, I exactly had that in mind 
when I started designing the new sound system.
I shouldn't talk big, but being able to use Nodes for audio effect 
processing would be superb and without really knowing anything about 
blender's nodes, I think of it as easy as keeping a simple pointer in an 
audio node for the sound system, which does the rest.
