What you want here is definitely something that will be supported.
That's not the debate. The discussion is about what should happen by
*default* the very first time a device is plugged in.
I maintain that the new device should not change your setup and that,
except in some special cases (like VoIP calls for Headset devices) the
new device should be injected in at the bottom of the priority list of
devices, not at the top.
