Still, we gain yet another config option that does not give us anything
new.
Note that SB emulation/WSS are exclusive. By using SB emulation
while WSS is going on, you make WSS unaccessible underneath the WSS
driver,
which is not good.

This is not true. DOSemu does its own SB emulation on top of the OSS
API,
so we do not gain anything even for DOSemu. (Besides, we want
to run legacy apps in DOSemu even on soundcards that do not have a SB
emulation, such as Ensoniq's AudioPCI, therefore it's a good thing
DOSemu has its own emulation).
