Thanks for the pointer to Raspbian switching to Pulse Audio.  
I thought the opening paragraph was a nice bit of understatement.  
First, a bit of background. Audio on Linux is really quite complicated. There are multiple different standards for handling audio input and output, and it does sometimes seem that what has happened, historically, is that whenever anyone wanted to use audio in Linux, they looked at the existing libraries and programs and went “Hmmm… I don’t like that, I’ll write something new and better.” This has resulted in a confused mass of competing and conflicting software, none of which *quite* works the way anyone wants it to!
