I hadn't gotten to the point of looking at the code yet.  I was going to
make some test packages, see how it worked as an esd replacement and
then go ahead and start looking at it.  If it is as you say,
impenetrable spaghetti, then I don't want to gain yet another
unmaintainable package.  Is it your position that the things that are
wrong with Polyaudio would be harder to fix than just fixing esd?  Or
perhaps there are better alternatives around? If we can find a solution
that is easy to integrate, maintain and audit I am all for that.
