I'll start with that, it's a good "non intrusive" change that can get me
more acquainted with the source and the overall build system, and
separate git repos.

True, and it will also require something like a second layer of
dependent options, so it might make sense to have that stored/offered
somewhere only once for API/qm and the Web UI, I'll think about it though…

I just did that, I like the idea of starting with a small feature ;)

I'll probably do it for alsa/pulseaudio support then, as this might be a
little bit more delicate, and might require discussion.

Thanks for your assistance and patience, hopefully I'll be able to help
that way ;)
