Hmmm, I'm not sure if this is currently possible, but I wonder if such a
trick could be done with a pulse module. I'd imagine there is a way to
tell when applications connect to a source for recording and this could
trigger such a custom rule. Really you'd want to mix the stereo stream
to a mono one rather than just mute the left channel on it's own as you
may be missing some important sounds!
As far as I know it can't be done right now. Not sure if Lennart has
plans similar to the above suggestion or not.. I'm sure he'll reply in
due course :)
