You know, I wonder how much latency and performance overhead you could reduce by dynamically generating code for and recompiling parts of the audio server according to your system configuration. Generally, I wonder how much more efficient our computers could be if systems-level components were created in a language with the rich metaprogramming capabilities of Lisp. Would the opportunities for dynamic recompilation and optimization outweigh the costs associated with such a runtime? And how could we reduce or eliminate those costs?
