Why?  Esound is open source.  if you have a problem with it, why not fix what we 
have, rather than try to replace it, forcing other coders to support multiple 
sound servers, and splitting the effort being aimed at the problem?

There's a *lot* of code about that already supports ESound.  You want all those 
projects to recode?

What's so bad about version 0.28 of Esound that can't be fixed by version 1.0?  
If you want to code, why can't you just submit patches?
