Stable doesn't always mean usable. Jessie has X xerver 1.16.4. I needed
newer. I couldn't find a way to get current 1.18.3 into Jessie even 
with backports enabled, so I dist-upgraded to Stretch, which has 1.18.3.

That solved an an initial obstacle to troubleshooting after sound quit
working altogether in Jessie, but sound is dead in Stretch too.

I doubt he needs KsCD. His preference is VLC, and both SMplayer and Kaffeine
were working too before the total death of sound. I'd like simply to remove
kscd-trinity, but attempting that wants to remove also kdemultimedia-trinity,
tde-trinity, and tde-multimedia-trinity, and subject ~several hundred trinity
and other packages to disappearance if autoremove ever gets run. :-(

Not an expectation, just something else to try.
