All these packages have dead upstreams, and are leaf packages which
nothing else depends on, except with USE=esd, which is also masked for
removal.

Note: wmpop has replacements with the same name, the rest are useless.

# Nirbheek Chauhan <nirbheek@g.o> (04 Jan 2012)
# Outdated and unused sound daemon. Why is this still in the tree?
# Removal of esd and deps in 30 days.
# In exceptional cases, you may use Pulseaudio's esound wrapper.
