Description : Libsalsa is a library providing an ALSA interface on top of OSS
This packages provides a compatibility layer between OSS and ALSA: it
is ABI-compatible with libasound (actually using alsa's headers), and
just makes OSS ioctls.
The idea would be to have libsalsa-dev provide libasound2-dev /
libasound-dev, built only on archs that do not have the latter, to make
sure buildds & co don't accidentally take it. libsalsa-asound2 just
provides a libasound.so.2 symlink to libsalsa.so and can thus provide
libasound2. That should permit to avoid having to fix all packages'
build-deps for non-linux archs.
