Trying to find an answer, at the bottom of the libsydney link above triton asks, "As for the lib, wouldn't it be easier to fix PortAudio? Why reinvent yet another audio lib? NIH syndrome?"
Overall I'm really happy with Pulse but I'm very skeptical about libsydney... Does this world need yet another audio API for developers to choose from?
Gotta say "I told ya so!"

That is one of the more fundamental issues I don't think that PortAudio is the way to go. There are more. And it's a feeling shared by a couple of other audio related people.
Fixing the fact that we have to many competing audio APIs on Linux by adding another one is of course paradox. But still, after discussing this forth and back I believe this is the right way.
