But GNOME sound (at least in some limited form) does work without ESD, right?
I would be sad to see that go away. And if we'll be moving to something that
isn't based on ESD in the future, encouraging people to use the ESD apis now
is the wrong thing to do.

Breaking source compatibility to force people to move to a new API is one
thing but removing functionality seems like the wrong approach.
