You wrote, on the very same topic, that the interface has to handle all
backends. Realistlcally, drain will be blocking for the foreseeable future, at
the very least because of ALSA. Deal with it.
Besides, there are no explanations what the point of this change is.
Asynchronous drain is not an end of its own, and I cannot say that I see the
use case (unlike asynchronous play).
