> Snd is free; the code is available via anonymous ftp as snd-18.tar.gz.

The main reason I am interested in it is because I have verified it builds and runs fine without the audiofile library.  The library is listed as hard dependency in the snd-17.4 ebuild.  Unfortunately it is riddled with known crashing bugs (see #614046) so I don't want to install it.  It is possible that the dependency is bogus even in the case of snd-17.4, but given that a new version is available I'm too lazy to check.

By the way, the current version is 20.1, and it seems to be under a free License (namely Artistic).  So bumping all the way could remove the non-free keyword.
