My main point is that libgnome/libgnomeui should use sound-server-API
internally for implementing sound events. I'm not sure that the
gnome-sound API should be publicly exported by libgnome at all, since it's
plausible that gstreamer could be the recommended API for the simple "play
a sound file" thing. If gnome-sound does need to exist, it should use
whatever API libgnome/libgnomeui use internally for sound events.

So, the choice really should be made as far as "what libgnome/libgnomeui 
use internally, and what is recommended for application developers".
