A flag that I don't like at all, as it should have probably been "alsa", but 
it was difficult to implement without proper usable package.use.mask (will 
take time before we can actually use it). This because aoss doesn't enable 
ALSA's *oss emulation*, but uses media-libs/alsa-oss to provide an 
indirection layer that filters accesses to DSP devices to move the data to 
ALSA. A similar thing is done by esddsp, artsdsp, padsp.

Yes this is feasible, but for the time being I'd rather not have to receive in 
my sound@g.o folder two bugs a day about people wanting OSS emulation in 
alsa-driver.
