There is ESD support in pwlib, but ESD (and probably artsd) are not very
well suited for GnomeMeeting usage:
- as soon as recording and playing are used at the same time, the CPU
goes to 50% and the voice quality becomes very bad.
- ESD is unable to record using a different audio device than the
playing audio device.
