As long as it's not into the esound daemon itself.  Now there would be
an UGLY hack!  The NAS server does a reasonable enough job of what
esound claims to do, all by itself.  :-)

I suspect it's quite easy to manually translate esound client calls into
NAS client calls, but I've not yet tried.

It may even be easy to make a library with an esound-like API that then
just calls the NAS libaudio directly (i.e. a shim over top the NAS
client library).  It should be easier to do this than it is to make
libaudiooss work.  :-)

Of course I don't _really_ need my browser itself to bleep at me!  ;-)
