Using the old mixer applet by default was rejected by FESco. However,
now I think about it, since it's part of a separate package, we could
theoretically resurrect it as a not-installed-by-default option. I'm not
inclined to spend a lot of time on this, though, since as far as I'm
concerned the biggest problem is 'provide some kind of graphical app to
let people tweak the raw alsa mixer elements and switch inputs'. I am
not as bothered about having the old applet available too, that's less
of an issue for me.
