I'm trying to weed out some of mediaplayer's performance killers, and 
volume control is on my list of stuff to look into.  I think it might be 
doing software volume control right now.

It would be great if there was some sort of daemon / library that got 
this stuff right and updated the *.state files depending on what the 
current profile is.  Then mediaplayer could talk to it instead of doing 
software mixing.  It could even update its volume slider as appropriate.
