Yeah, it's been discussed a bit. I'd like to see a "capture" or "input"
name in alsa for this. (effectively the same as front but for recording).

Also it would be nice if alsa refused to open the "front" device when
recording to allow us to fall back gracefully, but I suspect it would be
nicer if we could handle it correctly ourselves.

If we do handle it correctly ourselves, then I guess we could just go
straight to hw: for now until the alsa side is inplemented and thus we
probably should make some patches to handle this.
