If esound and libesd are separate packages on your distro [1], you should be
able to remove esound and install polypaudio, and everything should work as
normal. It will be extra effort to patch libgnome to use libpolyp instead of
libesd, but that can be done soon enough.

[1] Such as Debian or Ubuntu. polypaudio hasn't made it into Debian yet, but
on Ubuntu, just apt-get install polypaudio from universe. Restart your
session, marvel at the existence of a polypaudio daemon instead of esd, and
hear the lovely login music. :-)
