Tutorial on OpenMAX IL?

Does anyone have any guides on using OpenMAX IL, specifically for audio usage? The best I can find is the OpenMAX specification (which is very intimidating to say the least) and the hello_audio sample program in the Raspberry Pi firmware. The sample program also makes use of some helper library (ilclient) which I can't find any info on, and would like to avoid so I don't throw any portability out the window.

Also. libilclient is included as a library on the library path, but no header files are included for it. The header for it only exists in the hello_pi samples directory. Is that intentional?

I second this, it would be really good if anyone that has any knowledge on this can share. I'm trying to look at this OpenMAX IL stuff now, but its very scary!

Recent firmware includes source for ilclient.
