Are you proposing an in-process or an out-of-process playback of the sound
If it's in-process, I think you're going to find it very hard to adapt to
backends in use and to find themed files. At least, if you plan on
keeping this library lightweight.
If you're going for out-of-process, I suggest you simply define a D-Bus
interface class, service name as well as the documentation for it. This
should be enough. Your library would simply wrap those D-Bus calls and
signals for applications not using a high-level D-Bus binding.
