State of the ALSA sound scenarios/state files

I wondered what area of responsibility the ALSA state files are in, and what 
we plan to do with them.

From my testing and experience:
		- Works for doing phone calls
		- People will not enjoy the conversation with you (at least mickeyl didn't.)
		- e.g. reducing "Mono" (as in alsamixer), reduces the ugly noise on the 
	          other side, but also reduces the volume.

		- Barely working. It is almost impossible to hear anything, the microphone
		  does not seem to work at all.

		- The pains of audio. I will make this the sound of my alarm clock, it has
		  the potential to wake up the death. :)

so does this experience match up with yours? Is there anything I can do/test 
to improve the situation? On the bright side, the Qtopia/X11 image does boot 
up, you can enter your SIM PIN and make phone calls. We have to make the 
audio experience as pleasant as possible now... :)

kind regards
