You can't remove it. That would break the API, something that GNOME will not do.


Porting apps to libcanberra is the right thing to do. Convert every
single one you find. But, gnome_sound_play is in the platform until
GNOME-3.0 comes along and API can be broken. In that case, why not
have gnome_sound_play actually do something useful since it's dead
simple to do it?
