It's not just "that card". Pretty much every alsa driver I've seen
exports I/Os as cryptic labels, and no one ever bothered to map then to
human-readable labels. Hell sometimes when you ask on alsa lists alsa
people defer to whoever wrote the driver because they're not able to
deduce function from naming themselves (that's what you get from
revelling in being close to the hardware and forgetting the user view)

This is a disaster waiting to happen. XFree86 modelines and other black
magic all over again.
