Hey :)

This has actually come up once before, and the consensus was that it
would be better to edit /etc/init.d/alsa directly (it's a conffile, the
changes won't just be blown away on upgrade) to comment that line out.
Specifically, you may want to comment out lines 117 through 125, or make
an edit therein to stop it from saving it.

Is that a good enough solution?
