I think this option is horribly wrong. Why use it at all when you can
start esd with
'esd `cat /etc/esound/esd.conf`'
? Another option just adds to the copmplexity and will confuse the user.
Editing esd.conf is how he expects it to work, you clearly did ;), and
adding this option will require documentation.
Can you give a good reason why "yet another option (tm)" is a good
