gnome-sound provides fallback functionality if esound or audiofile 
are missing. I think even this can be removed.

What's the problem? gnome-config lists the libs for you. On proper
platforms a simple "-lgnome" (or "-lgnomeui") suffices.

That's somewhat like saying: it's a hassle to link with libjpeg, so
lets reimplement it in libgnomeui.

What would perhaps make sense, IMO, is to provide support for NAS as
an alternative to esound's transport system. Even this stuff is
probably better done in esound than in gnome-libs.
