I agree with Ramon; OSS doesn't provide drivers for some cards (or they
have really low quality, like the one for my card...). It's not just easing
the migration.

Reasons to include ALSA in 2.4.23:

- Lots of people need it.
- 99.9 % of kernels from vendors have it (they need to include them to
give good hardware support), which means they have been tested a lot.
- Lots of non-vendor kernels have it (even more testing).
- Some drivers have better quality.
- Low impact: they don't break anything; they're just configurable drivers.
- They're stable.
- They're cool.

Reasons against:
<write here your opinion>

Of course it's ALSA people and Marcello who should speak here not me...
