Is there any easy way to restrict access to a sound card in a system to local 
users only?

I've got a box with KDE 3.1 (ALSA 0.9 sound drivers) which accepts local XDM 
logons and acts as a host for several old PCs acting as X terminals. However, 
all the boings and pings from the remote sessions come through the local 
sound card, which is annoying, especially for someone like me who hates 
'notification sounds' and prefers to turn them all off and use the sound card 
purely for music or video soundtracks.
