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 email@example.com folder two bugs a day about people wanting OSS emulation in
