BSD is fine and we've used BSD licensed things previously. at the moment it's just a possible thought since if it's meant to be more reliable (and that you've got a working plug-in showing it in use) then it's probably less work for us (well me) to modify it to add in the things that native plug-ins need to provide compared to trying to go though the mess of the existing in_mod and re-work that.

though without some proper research (as mikmod has been mentioned as being crap in your ticket but i'd need a bit more on why it's crap compared to your solution or any others), i don't know if it's the better option or not or we instead look to just update to a recent version of mikmod and keep that historical usage going (seeing as both projects appear to be actively developed at the moment).

[edit]
from a quick scan through a few posts / forums, i'm undecided since it's all relating to the blatantly old version of mikmod used and doesn't seem to help see if the newer 3.x branch is better or not. i guess there's no distinct (and ideally somewhat independent) comparison between the different engines ?
