   It is fully optional.  I have my own GNOME without sound, because it
   pisses me off.  

Why on earth do I even *want* sound and X *installed* on a dedicated
print server, already?  It's just that many more things to go wrong.

   I think you are just out of the loop ;-)

Maybe.  I happen to work on high end servers (take a guess at the kind
of scale -- processors, memory, disk -- I'm talking about; I'm curious
what you think of in that context).

   maybe the problem is that any solution around it really sucks?
