Absolutely.

As I said on IRC already, you cannot use "Rendezvous" or "ZeroConf". I
do not know whether any of these are TM'd, R'd or (c)'d, but ZeroConf
outlines a requirement which Apple's Rendezvous meets, Tryst does not
since it lacks the requirement of "IP Interface Configuration".

I could add it but it would be mucking on OS level, which I think is not
for GNUstep. Plus, you'd need a couple of different implementations,
each specific to the OS it's running on. Unless someone is willing to
help porting it to different OSs...

Absolutely. GNUstep *needs* _one_ Sound/Music related framework, else
each individual package will re-invent the wheel and use its own.
