I don't understand what libdnet has to do with the actuall report.
Please clarify this a bit for me.

I have just checked the package dependecys. libroar* does not depend on
any sound server but recommends virtual package roaraudio-server.
So you can have it installed without such an additional server.

I use roard (package: roaraudio) instlled. I do not like to have any
dependecy on *pulse* packages. See? It is exacktly the other way around

So if cmus does have plugin in a new plugin package pulseaudio support
(and maybe other) should be moved into a seperate package as well.
