Hmm, I run without aRTs because it interferes with some applications attempts
to use the sound. (DivX player Alpha 2.0, to name one). Because it takes
control of the sound-card all non-aRTs enabled programs see it as busy.
I just have LookNFeel>System Notifications use an external player ( a script
called sndplay that calls aplay)
aplay -N $1
so that runs APlay in non-blocking mode so that It doesn't interfere with
aRTs should be a simple wrapper, any advanced functionality would be better
contributed to ALSA.
