No, it's not. But if we were forced to push everything through dmix as a
layer of arbitration, then it would be used.

EAX is a series of bytecode compiled modules that can be built with
as10k1 and loaded onto the emu10k1 with the ld10k1 tool.

See http://emu10k1.sourceforge.net/as10k1-manual/index.html and
(discontinued here but I think it's been continued elsewhere)
http://ld10k1.sourceforge.net/ pages for details.
