There exists two compatible implementations for lash, the original lash and ladish. To let the user decide, what implemention he wants to use, the cleanest way in my opinion is a virtual/liblash like several overlays already provide.

I am willing to maintain this ebuild.

Would love this ebuild, too. ladi and proaudio overlay defines a virtual/liblash, so the user could choose his favorite implementation. Both overlays workaround the hardcoded lash dependencies in the official tree.

At least it would be useful to create a virtual/liblash, that link to media-sound/lash, so the workarounds are not necessary.

I just looked at the last commits. The last ladish commit was 6 month ago, the last lash commit was 2009.

Reproducible: Always
