I think the idea would be that people use the GStreamer esdsink when
they want network transparency. One thing that has been discussed
earlier in regards to this is the fact that esound caches sound samples
today to conserve bandwith/better latency, so if you have various 'ding'
sounds for applications they will be cached in the sound server. If we
want to keep that around with GStreamer then a GStreamer abstraction API
to handle it needs to be made. I don't think the creation of such an API
should be a blocker for Ian doing this switch though.

I for one would be very happy if you manage to take care of this
migration Ian.
