Hi Kevin. We have discussed adding post functionality, but you have to
think that all sounds must be described and moderated, so they would not
be instantly available.
Also, there is currently no way to authenticate as a freesound user
other than the API key used by the developer of an API client. Our first
goal is to solve this issue by adding three-legged authentication. This
means that in addition of the API key used by the developer, final users
will also have to authenticate in order to download (and maybe in the
future upload) sounds.
