Yep. Annoyingly the most important next thing is not a fun one,
pitch manipulation in pure wave form, yey!

I laughed out loud the first time I read that, and this time I groaned.

This is already implemented, but it is an obnoxious amount of logging,
and I have it tagged with pid so you get one for notifications and one
for main server. I need to make a version that is an exact copy of what
the current log-server variants do, super handy. Honestly, just have to
check executable name and then add a bit of code.

True enough. Solid servers using well supported mainline tech so we don't
to do this work again for a bit. Just want to solidify and contribute and
then mostly just be a regular user of them until something breaks! I got
improvements I want to make!
