Any user which needs non-stereo output (5.1 DVD sound...) will need to
wade through the non-defaut settings (with the cryptic alsa naming). In
those cases the default may not even be plugged anywhere.

Right now this concerns a growing minority of normal persons, in a few
years I expect it to be pretty much everyone. So this is a real problem.
