	The problem with dmix is that the client has to support using it. The
OSS-compatibility layer doesn't work with dmix, most of the time.

	In general, current programs cannot using ALSA mixing, they must use a
sound server.

	I've been using ALSA since RH9, and it's a big pain from a consumer
side of things. :-) Of course, it's great from a Pro Audio standpoint,
because it gives you So Much Control. :-)
