I think it would be useful to discriminate packages that use a sound
card to output audio, and packages that input audio. Totem plays audio,
while gnome-sound-recorder records audio (and can play it afterwise, but
this is kind of secondary).

To answer to possible objections about the existing sound::recording,
recording sound and using a microphone is not quite the same. Using a
microphone is necessary to record sound, but a microphone can be used to
grab sound and stream it without recording it at all.
