Well, of course you can have an esd backend for CSL.

My pluggable API is basically overkill since we could just link libgnome
with CSL and then write CSL backends for everything (esd, arts, GStreamer),
but I think having even CSL as pluggable backend will make things a bit
more convenient for non-sound apps.
