removing esd - seems possible now?



Looks like infrastructure for removing esd is in place.
The following prevent it:

1. dmix isn't enabled by default in FC4t2 (like esd, it enables multiple
sound sources to output at the same time).
This has been solved upstream in alsa 1.0.9rc2:
https://bugtrack.alsa-project.org/alsa-bug/view.php?id=1068
Could this be updated before FC4t3?

2. gstreamer uses alsa by default, but doesn't work:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=155542

3. GNOME sound preferences capplet doesn't allow events sounds without
esd, I assume only because the UI design:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=155421
The option to start ESD at GNOME startup should be removed.

Seems like there's no need now for another sound server like MAS, as
alsa+dmix can do the job.
