The rationale for not unloading the module on exit ? I don't know. It sure is 
*much* easier. In the case of the arts driver, I considered doing this, but 
what if the user calls remove_sound() in the middle of the program ? The sound 
wouldn't really be removed... this could be reasonable, though.

I have found a problem with the patch I proposed: each time install_sound is 
called, a new function is registered with atexit. This doesn't break anything, 
and my solution still works, but this could be considered a memory leak... I'll 
think some more about it tonight.

Argh! This atexit stuff is a real mess :-)
