Sorry, I wasn't clear: does this mean it will be possible to build Gnash
without _any_ sound handler (well, perhaps with only the
NullSoundHandler, I mean)?  Right now, SDL is a hard requirement for
Gnash, yes?  Once the interface is cleaned up and a NullSoundHandler
implemented, it should be possible to build Gnash without any other
sound handler, right?

Cool.  I'll try and take a look.
