Sure, but you can't remove this function from libgnome, that'd be against
the interface stability rules. It's a shame it's exposed in the API
like this but live and learn.

esound or something that emulates it like Polypaudio will have to
be shipped as a deprecated legacy API until the next GNOME compatibility
break, if that ever happens (no real reason to ever stop supporting the
esound API, it's not that big).
