I just checked it out based on his mail, its quite interesting, monitors
the streams and adjusts/fades volume based on some user-defined rules
(through a gtk GUI). Not really very flexible though, doesn't work very
well in multi-output environments from the same card (like built-in
Intel volume controlling both speaker and headphones).

It does introduce an additional point of failure though. Matt, you
should try pavucontrol instead.
