[openal] A couple questions about OpenALSoft

     Two quick questions:

What's the possibility of getting OpenALSoft HRTEF to work at 192000 
HZ?  I know that the difference is probably imperceptible, but my audio 
equipment claims to support it, and it'd be nice if this just works 
without changing settings.  Is there a reason that makehrtf limits to 
96khz?  I'm assuming I can't just disable this limit and expect it to 
work.  Also, looks like this only hits mmdevapi backend-the older ones 
seem to not go over 96khz.

Secondly, how do I make proper use of buffers that are more than 2 
channels?  I'm not sure how to map samples from their desired channel to 
the expected data format, and no information seems available anywhere on 
this.  Does anyone know which order to put the channels in before 

On a sidenote, does anyone know how to extract the order from audio 
files, or if there is a standard order that audio files use? 
Camlorn_audio, my python/C++/probably other language bindings can do 
stereo, but it'd be nice to get them automatically doing other 
multichannel formats without extra steps by the user.
