Does ESPEAKER take a 'display' ala X? i.e. when tunneling esd, you can
wind up with user X ssh'd to A, and then from there ssh'd to
B. ESPEAKER on B should be pointing to 'A' but on a different port so
it can be picked up, and tunnelled back to the original machine.

The ssh X tunneling uses multiple displays to handle this. Is there
such a thing for esd? or is the port fixed?
