The esd protocol doesn't even povide the most simple timing
primitives. As such it is only useful for the most basic music
playback, where timing does not matter.

The ALSA API requires proper timing support. Since esd cannot provide
that it makes no sense to run the ALSA API on top of the esd protocol.
