Sure, wouldn't be hard..
The device driver currently always outputs the same format (44kHz 16-bit
stereo slinear_le). You could have an application reading from
/dev/sound[1-8], mix the results together, and feed them back to
/dev/sound0 (the real hardware device).
You could even get fancy and make /dev/sound a symlink to another pseudo
device that selects the first available pseudo audio device..
