Ultimately we're going to need more than one implementation of (whatever
the API is), probably one per browser engine. So it's not just a matter of
contributing code to "the Web Audio API".

I don't think having contributed C code in browsers for all the effects
people want is going to scale. I think it's important to have the best
possible support for JS-based audio generation and processing. That
probably means using Workers, as ProcessedMediaStream does:
