1. Yeah, going to experiment a bit, right now my latency changes seem
to be in the 130ms to 230ms range from turning on spacial audio. Which
at first testing seems acceptable to me, but I am on high end hardware.

I might experiment with doing it manually, but the spatial engine has
a nice upside of protecting me from any Apple format changes as it is
attached to the player which will always support Apples internal format
Core Audio.

2. With Swiftmac 2.0 -- it tracks far more like the other servers
handling the queue as expected, I did some silly stuff with swiftmac 1.0
due to not really understanding some of the clever stuff emacspeak already
does for you, so swiftmac 2 is way better at handling like bulk outputs
from eshell.
