Enable the virtual channel support (see output of "sysctl -a | grep
vchans") and the kernel will automatically mix multiple sound streams
into one, and auto-assign programs to the different /dev/dsp0.*
devices as needed.  Much nicer than the ALSA methods, and something
that FreeBSD has handled for a *long* time.  :)
