It's the same as for all other cases you asked. If there is a good chance
that it will be fixed soon, and you keep track of it, and submitted the
changes (it's bad if we have bianry packages and nobody knows how they have
been produced!), then I think you can upload without anybody getting angry
with you.

esound can be compiled without sound support ;) (I think I tweaked the
configuration so it had some dummy files for the Hurd or so). I can probably
remember it when looking at the source.

Yes, that's important.
