I'm not going to join the sndio vs. pulse discussion.

But from a maintenance point of view it sucks big time to have a bunch
of ways to play sound, and everybody uses a different one so you have to
maintain a backend for each of those methods.

Maybe we should outsource that problem.  Write a gstreamer backend, then
delete oss/alsa/sdl/pulse/whatever backends and let gstreamer handle
that mess ...
