Didn't it work for those with hardware mixing? It certainly appeared to
work for me (with or without esd)...

I understand and fully agree with the reasoning behind this. There are
so few cards with hardware mixing support these days that it doesn't
make sense to postpone software mixing any longer (and perhaps dmix will
one day smarten up and use hardware mixers when they are available). Non
sound daemon mixing is going to be one of those major distro milestones
like the WIMPified Anaconda installer, defaulting to antialiased fonts,
including yum or EDID support in X.

We "just" need ALSA support in those apps not supporting esound or ALSA
now (hint hint BZflag :). Oh and for SDL to default to using ALSA rather
than OSS...
