I'll work on 1), 4) and 7) (ie ALSA and general crashes) as I can't help
with endianness or gorm issues.

I will open other threads if/when I find something useful.

Works for me, even if deduplication is only based on file path right now.

Maybe I didn't get understand you correctly but in my opinion all these
points shouldn't block a release, unless they make Cynthiune crash. But
all of them would be welcome in a future release of course !
