Testing for audio playback

I was thinking of that. My only concern is what to do if the
application died and did not get to restore the suspend state back to
its previous value.

For what its worth, there is a gconf setting for the suspend state
that can be set. Neod is supposed to monitor it but the gconf callback
is not working for some reason. I am looking into that atm. Gconf
would be the easy way for other apps to control the suspend state.
