The same can be done with GStreamer too.. On the app server, audio is
sent to a tcpclientsink, on the thin client, a tcpserversrc receives it,
which is linked to, for example, alsasink. All nice and stuff :]

It might need some careful coding, but network sound with gstreamer is
certainly possible.
