is there a way to find out if anyone is actively pursuing adding the recording functionality
to the maestro-2e driver?

i would like to offer them my assistance.   i am not a programmer, but am willing to help
in other ways (researching, testing, writing docs, whatever).

also, Taku, if you have already have a working albeit somewhat imperfect solution, would
you be willing to submit it to the FBSD project?  perhaps whoever is in charge of the
pcm / ESS drivers would be willing to review the code.  (i am only hoping here.  i have
no idea about the code submission process...)

hoping only to find out more about this (and help out, if that is possible).
many thanks to all who reply.
