Good idea. Option when you finish that: take ESD, rip out the bit about
actually being a sound server, keeping the socket protocol to load and
cache sound samples. Call it gnome-sound-effectsd or such (trying to
make the name suggest that it is not a sound server). Keep the esd code
to actually play the effects. Afterwards it can be replaced with a
solution using GStreamer, but that would be a bit of work.

This way you keep the samples alive only in one process, and also some
attention can be given to realtime behavior.

Just some ideas,
