Just another datapoint: the GNOME 3 version of gnome-games won't have
USE=sound anymore, I've made it a hard-dependency since almost all the
games use it now.

Both of these are reasonably well-known, libcanberra is not. Moreover,
when these are available, they might represent a choice of backends,
with maintainers ideally picking one that is preferable, leaving the
picking an alternative choice to users.

This sounds reasonable. Did I miss some conversation somewhere,
because it appears that "libcanberra" got finalised [1] on (even
though I believe it's a horribly unintuitive name to foist on users).
