Ok I'm far enough along so that I need some beta testers to try the  
SUnits for the GStreamer plugin on Linux.

Right now the SUnit runs thru about 32 tests to check the sanity of  
the API and functionality of playing *.ogg files
it has created, or downloaded from http://www.gutenberg.org/files.   
This of course works on my os-x macintel machine
with GStreamer installed but I need to broaden the test base a bit.

Other issues.

(a) I have not written this for 64bit linux, I don't have a test  
machine setup for that.  Likely some work
is required to rework the SLANG so that it's 64bit pointer aware  
versus being 32bit aware.

(b) GStreamer is not part of the standard OS-X installation,  
installing it requires practice with the cmd-line, and lots of time.

(c) I have no plans to test or make this work on Windows.
