There will be, but let's get the ones with layout-id first since
snd-powermac should work on the older ones.
Is snd-powermac based on alsa? That was my impression, but I can't
convince xmms to use an alsa driver for playing while using
snd-powermac :-/ .
Previousely I have been using dmasound_pmac + esd because nothing else
provided good sound (snd-powermac was distorting the sound, playing it
too fast), but now it seems to be working fine. Still I would like to
use alsa so that I can have multiple streams without needing esd.
