Doesn't ALSA support mixing also? I would like to propose that we define a
standard library for sound access. The libesd might be a good starting point
as there are many patches for sound apps to use esd instead of /dev/dsp.
Then we could provide a package libnoesd, which links instead of the libesd
and directly accesses /dev/dsp (or whatever).
