One of the best arguments I've heard for having a user-daemon sound server
is that it'll be far more receptive to dynamic reconfiguration via D-BUS or
similar tools, and doesn't have to run as root. polypaudio is pretty cool in
this regard, because it has support for a number of different hardware and
network interfaces.
