If that backend supports live mixing of many audio sources from different sound frontends, then its very good, but if it is not, then its just another sound api/layer.

And from where this shit come from? Linux. As a workaraounds for poor ALSA/Linux OSS implementation.

... and that is why we encourage to use OSS code from FreeBSD / OSS4, you can have live in kernel mixing of even 256 sources of the sound, OSS channels, you can have runnig mulitple esound/arts daemons without any problem if you even want, that is flexibility and power.

Linux is not UNIX! Face it! It is not an insult. It is fact: GNU is a recursive acronym for “GNU's Not UNIX”.
