This is basically my thoughts on looking at OpenAL rather than osgAL,
it's not to get a full blown 3D audio solution like osgAL, but just a
cross platform way of playing the audio from a movie.

Once we have an osgAudio integrated with core OSG then we'll way to
make sure we have the option audio streams from a movie can be placed
in the 3D world like everything else, so the AudioStream that ffmpeg
plugin provides would need to be evolved in conjunction with osgAudio
to allow them to be placed in the scene like other audio sources.
