He could have been talking about the protocol rather than the API, but
there were issues.  However, I have now read the two GNOME threads on
Polypaudio/PulseAudio which has quite a bit more discussion than the
abbreviated Fedora thread I read before and it looks like the PulseAudio
author was very responsive and addressed most of Alan's concerns.  So
yes, let's make esd go away :-)

(Looks like tibbs has started reviewing the pulseaudio bug for Extras.
