It shouldn't be too difficult to write a tiny PA module for this which
spits out a alsa config file which could then be included in the main
alsa config file.

Would be pretty nifty. And especially useful for PA virtual devices.

I posted this as feature request bug http://pulseaudio.org/ticket/109
so that I don't forget.

Happy to accepted patches ;-)
