Your solution isn't that good. /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf is
installed as distributed from upstream. The correct way to set
priorities of more than one sound device is to define it in a file
in /etc/modprobe.d, i.e. myalsa.conf.

Well we're members of the open source comunity and it would be fine
to send us a patch as usual.


  It's a good thing we don't get all
