By upstream decision, it appears that the gnome media subsystem is now
unusable with OSS. When using OSS, esound blocks access to /dev/dsp and
all write attempts there result in EBUSY.
It seems they have provided no option in gstreamer-properties to pipe the
sound via esd, so the only option if you want mixing is to use ALSA.
Please, can you add a dependency  on libesd-alsa0 ? Users shouldn't get
all these problems unless they explicitly need OSS.
 but please make it conditionalised so that it'll only happen when
$(DEB_HOST_ARCH_OS) equals "linux".
