That's a true screenshot, but that argument is vulnerable to the exact
same 'logic' used to justify not caring about people who need to adjust
a different slider than Master or PCM, or people who want to switch
input channels: it's not a common case. most people don't see that much
of a mess of channels. The "Trident TRID4DWAVENX" is not a common sound
adapter.

What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander - if our objection to
hardware channel access is 'it's insane on a few configurations', then
'it totally breaks what people are trying to do with their sound card on
a few configurations' is a valid objection to the new system.

If that's not the objection, stop shopping that screenshot around
everywhere. =)
