It has in the sense of for a very long time its been the heir-in-waiting
for all things multimedia, and there is no credible challenger (xine is
patent dangerous, not flexible enough, etc). However I am lead to
believe that ESD is not dead yet because there is no simple
gst_play_sound ("/from/file") type API that is currently in use in a
couple places.

Polyp audio was considered to replace ESD, but I think for the sake of
simplifying things it was decided to, in the future, use pure GST over
another sound server.

ps. Did you derive your alias from pasting the first names of your
favourite GNOME hackers together? (bad joke :)
