Apologies if it should have been directed to Boost users instead.

If you're talking about standardizing algorithms and data structures for
manipulating audio data (like Boost.Gil, but for audio data), then I second
your suggestion.

However, it sounds to me like you suggesting a library to abstract away the
details of dealing with audio hardware. That would be a nightmare to
maintain and it would bloat the heck out of Boost, so I vote no for that.
