So this means that the two systems can't coexist... I can't say I like
it (I may prefer to use a particular sound system for a certain
feature the other one misses) but at the moment I don't think there
are other solutions.

We'll have to talk about that file (maybe in private, I'm hijacking
the thread and it isn't nice), in particular about the removal of
libflashsupport, which is also provided in libflashsupport-pulse, a
package I've been wanting to move to [community] for a while.

Yeah, I got it with oss-linux-free, IIRC. Anyway, I *personally* think
that no package should touch files owned by other packages, even
though it seems harmless and reversible. I'd like to hear from others
about this, though.
