Yes, I agree. That, or if you want to be really sure, libasound2. That
package already ships tons of non-SONAME specific files anyway (and
thus is not installable in parallel with other sonames), so putting
one more script there won't hurt much. But I guess alsa-base ought to
be available everywhere, too.

I agree.
