The ESOUND compatibility module is easy to test: just install
polypaudio and enable that module and use it instead of esd.  In case
you use ubuntu: there already is a package which replaces the esd
binary with a wrapper script calling the polypaudio daemon. This
testing can happen now with a plain Gnome 2.8 installation, there's no need to
patch anything.

Polypaudio's native protocol is much harder to test, since there
aren't as many clients available yet. The Gstreamer sink is a notable
exception. It can be used on Gnome 2.8 as well.
