Yes, esd is GNOME's sound daemon.  Some of the newer stuff uses GStreamer, 
which is much more flexible.  If you can't configure your GNOME apps to use 
arts or alsa (basically anything but ESD ;)  then you could run esd via 
artswrapper, which would make it work with arts.  Do try to find KDE 
equivalents for whatever GNOME apps you're trying to use, though -- often KDE 
provides equally viable if not better alternatives.
