We're trying to kill esound completely, and having the release-team look
in the other direction when we're adding those new dependencies is the
easiest way for us to move in that direction.

In any cases, it's the distributor's decision which sound server to use,
but I wouldn't want to be the one wasting (a small amount of) time
writing an esound backend for libcanberra.
