Just a little comment: Generally it has shown to be sufficient, if
hardware manufactures open up the technical specification for a device
and provide documentaiton, then someone will come along sooner or
later and write the driver as open source.

I think, this is much nicer than what we have for example with NVidia
graphics cards or networks adapters, where no specs are available,
only closed source, binary drivers written by the manufacturer, which
reportedly (I don't buy Nvidia) cause all sorts of trouble in regard
to audio performance and more. This trouble cannot be fixed by "us",
because the drivers are binary only, and changing them is not allowed.

So I'd rather not have a driver by the manufacturer, than a closed
source one.

Isn't the EZBus supported as a USB audio device?
