The simpler the better ;-)

That's probably a good idea, it could save a lot of boilerplate (such
as the true/false option constants in this code) if there are enough
things that require booleans. It could also make it easier on the
user, depending on the interface.

Awesome. I look forward to contributing more.

I wasn't sure if MinGW could use the Creative import library, I
thought that perhaps it was in a different archive format or
something, because I couldn't unar it (I know that *nix and MinGW
native import libraries are ar archives of object files.) I guess I
could've tried linking against it anyways...

The updated patch works for me ;-)
