But apps have to be esd aware to work. This is the main problem
I have. Does esd create sockets as files which the likes of
mpg123 could pass with a -a switch?
I think any app that writes to /dev/dsp* should work.
Preferably without hacking the kernel to allow multiple
writers to a file.
Isn't one of the UNIX philosophies: Everything should be a file?

But this hypothetical networking thing I'm talking about would
take whats written to /dev/dspX and send it. It would be
