This message in gnome-list give me some ideas in mind, isn't the time for
GNOME have a full featured sound server? 

Like esd, but esd only work with e, so the GNOME sound server should work
with all GNOME compilant window managers (a little changes in wm spec will
be need). ie. window maker has your own sound events, if he is 100% new
GNOME sound compilant, when he receives a sound event, he send the event
to gnome sound server, and gnome plays this event.

And another GNOME apps can send their sounds directly to GNOME sound
server, who have some nice features like playback of multiple samples

Well, you get the idea. What the real GNOME hackers think about that?
