No!!!  That's exactly the wrong approach, it will only encourage
applications to use the OSS API.  Do you really still want to be using
the same ancient binary-only flashplayer/realplayer plugin for 5 more

Why don't you ask the Skype developers when they plan to support ALSA?
Or figure out why it crashes with aoss?
