supposedly arts is capable of a number of audio backends, even ESD. I know 
that it works with NAS, which has a /dev/dsp redirection library available 
already. so for terminals, NAS isn't a bad proposition. the one gotcha is 
that if you are using NAS, you need to turn the buffer just about off in the 
KDE control panel, or you'll get some awful skipping.

Oooo, I would agree with that, especially if existing esd software doesn't 
require much changes. Would MAS (http://www.mediaapplicationserver.net/)  be 
a realistic possibility?
