I hadn't gotten to the point of looking at the code yet.  I was going to

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.

Well... direct alsa usage can handle the ESD stuff, as long as you
don't care about network audio (and someone may want to write a shim
esd-like layer for playback.)

How important is network audio, anyway?
There are lots of thin client installation, it's important.
