what you might be forgetting is that in any given nas installation,
there are probably more client pieces than server pieces.  i have
just three nasd servers running in the house, but many many
instances of auplay, madplay_nas, aumix, etc, scattered
throughout various scripts on various systems.  i'm not looking
forward to finding and replacing all those aufoo programs if i were
to want to switch to PA for some reason.

p.s.  believe it or not, we even use auedit -- my wife finds the
"replay segment between markers" feature to be incredibly useful
for practicing her chorus part, using demo music that's handed
out for that purpose.
