Yes, but you should be able to let the awe_wave module be loaded first
as the kernel docs says, removing from modules.conf the post-install
line which runs sfxload, and run sfxload later from an /etc/init.d
script (with /usr mounted).

Yes. It would be a nice idea. ALSA works that way, BTW.

On the other hand, we should be able to provide some useful sound
patches in order to be able to call sfxload from there. I don't know
if there are any DFSG compliant ones available...
