Right, OSS4 is available under all 3 licences.. but the maintainer of all things audio, doesn't want a port of OSS4.

It's a kernel module, most definitely won't end up in base.. they don't like kernel modules.

Also, they don't need to port it.. the existing interface works fine.. even if they did, OSS4 doesn't support stream multiplexing either.

From what I can tell, the consensus is.. "It's easier to keep the existing framework, and merge features from the BSD licenced OSS4 when applicable."
