You can always grab sndrec32.exe from Windows...

Yes, esddsp is included in esound.

Most, if not all, Esound patches are left alone...

PA is certainly not unmaintained. We have recently contributed support for 
MS Windows as well as Solaris, in addition to the ALSA plugin. I think a

One nice thing about the PA server is that it's support Esound as well. 
This makes a transition easy.
