For designing and implementing a sound system it might be feasible to port either just OSS or ALSA (perhaps with OSS on top of it), since these provide widely used interfaces which would allow using ``tuneful'' software without requiring further porting.

The device drivers themselves would most probably be implemented directly in GNU Mach, and then there would be a translator to be installed on /dev/snd which would provide the various device nodes in there.
