It was just an idea, I think it is rude of you to say I was being rude.

Of course it is not policy, it was just idea, that obviously everybody hates.
I stand by it though. It is the RIGHT way. Well maybe not, maybe mixing should
be in the kernel, actual that sounds bad, I don't know. But the OS should
provide a way for all programs to access the sound system with some mixing
going on.

After all, Linux is a multiuser, multitasking OS, it deserves the ability to
play multiple sounds at once.
