The thing is, the typical user wants to do a lot more then that now days. Things like a video from a web site in a web browser, an alert when they get an IM, new mail, or an incoming call. Or they may be playing an incoming audio stream. There are users who have surround sound or digital output connected. Then you have the people that that want to redirect the audio from one computer over the network to another computer. Sound usage is changing, and the software is changing to meet the new demands. All the arguments and complaints reminds me of the change to udev. I heard a lot of the same complaints.
