that hypothetical thing is esd - it can listen to a socket, as well
as many other network audio daemons.
personally, i think it'd be nice if an nas standard was to be
included as part of X11, as that would have most hope of becoming a
true standard, as well as actually being logical.
(X server should be the arbitrator for /all/ user i/o. it already
handles screens, keyboards and mice, audio is just as logical)
