Because not every machine is a single-user machine, and not every user
can edit /etc/esound/esd.conf?
Yes, it sounds like gnome-session should start esd with esd.conf by
default to obtain options that required for the card to work, but if
it makes sense to pass options that are user preferences, then it also
needs to support an environment variable or ~/.esd.conf or some such.
The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating
system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the
world. -- seen on the net
