No, my patch is necessary for your use case, because without it nasd
tries to open /dev/dsp for out- and input (unless you actually have a
/dev/dsp1 that can be used by nasd). Nevertheless this is some
additional functionality implemented by a quick hack and might introduce
new bugs. I've only tested it briefly and don't plan to actually use
this feature, therefor I did not push this patch for inclusion.
Of course I think it works and am willing to fix bugs as they are
