Why not? It's just another sound server that has all the problems of sound server: they think they are the way of the future and every program have to use them and can't access the sound devices directly.
Same exact thing happened with ARTS. And where is it now? So the same exact thing applies to all sound servers - get rid of them as fast as you can. And don't bother using them - they don't work.
