I would recommend /dev/audio - if you have a sound card, you'll
use /dev/audio to talk to your card (or /dev/dsp) and you won't
care about the speaker.  If all you have is a speaker, you still
get your /dev/audio and applications don't have to be special
cased or given command line options.

Sun .au style, definately.  This is how the current driver works!
