Hi Ian.  For what it's worth, a comprehensive test suite is very much a
priority for us.  We've adapted both WebKit's mac and chrome port of
DumpRenderTree and run-webkit-layout-tests to handle audio within the last
week.  I've written seven "layout" tests so far, and have many more planned
for the near future.  So, whatever reason there is for *not* having an audio
api, this is not a good reason.
