I'm not sure where you got the impression that I was ever confused about
that in the slightest. In fact, I am quite vocal (ask anyone who was at
GUADEC-3 etc) about GStreamer *NOT* being the solution for the sound server
mess. It is simply not designed for it. As you say, GStreamer is designed
(from the beginning) as a intra-application framework only.
What specifically did I say that gave any impression otherwise? Perhaps I
need to rephrase what I originally wrote to be more clear.
