in the "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" department, i mention

since there seems to be some movement towards pulseaudio as a
network-aware audio distribution mechanism
(http://www.linux.com/feature/119926), and since pulseaudio has
its own audiooss-like wrapper for oss applications
i'm wondering if the a nasd server could be run on top of the
pulseaudio shim (i.e., "padsp nasd", as in the previous link). 
this would let both nas clients (connecting via nasd) and
pulseaudio clients (like firefox, connecting via pulseaudio) both
get at local hardware, with the mixing being done in the
pulseaudio server.

it's worth a try.  i'll report back.
