I guess the only way for things to look properly for the user right
now would be if they could do:

al_get_next_event(queue, &event);
if (event.type == ALLEGRO_EVENT_AUDIO) {
    buffer =;

But I don't see any possibility to make that work.

Maybe we should add an alternate way to access event fields which looks
something like:

al_get_next_event(queue, &event);
if (event.type == ALLEGRO_EVENT_AUDIO) {
    buffer = ALLEGRO_AUDIO_EVENT(event).buffer;

the macro could then simply be something like:

#define ALLEGRO_AUDIO_EVENT(event)\

We should also make a macro for each builtin event type so you can
handle all your events consistently, e.g.:

keycode = ALLEGRO_KEYBOARD_EVENT(event).keycode;

The union way would of course stay valid for backwards compatibility.
