At first sight, it looks ok. Note that I didn't actually test it (I'll
do that in the course of the next few days), so I have no clue whether
it works. I'm sure you tested that correctly. ;).

It seems like it'll first use the system mixer, and only if that's not
available, it will use the GStreamer interface. Is that correct? If so,
could that be turned around? Eventually, I'd like all mixer stuff in
Gnome to use GStreamer (as a small step in our intention to take over
the world [1]). ;). I don't know the opinion of the applet maintainer(s)
on this, they'd have to agree too, of course.

Anyway, thanks for the patch, it's cool someone has worked on this! I'm
hoping to try it out tonight or tomorrow.



[1] Brain, what will we do tomorrow? - Same thing we do every day pinky;
try to take over the world.
