Well, we do have a couple of GUI mixers which still give you raw access
- the xfce mixer is the most logical fit. But I'd really like to have it
installed by default in this particular case. People will be happy at
not having a GUI mixer with raw access to the hardware channels only if
the shiny new abstracted mixer genuinely covers every case. As is very
clear from this list, the bug report, test-list and fedoraforums, it's
not even close. So I'm going to push very hard to have an alternate GUI
mixer available for F11. The new mixer is obviously the Way Forward, but
at the moment it's two steps forward for most people and a couple of
dozen back for a significant minority.
