ALSA 1.0.27, do we want to run the alsactl daemon?


Hey folks,
So I am in the middle of packaging alsa 1.0.27 for saucy and putting it in the alsa-testing PPA to get some testing, and I am wondering whether we all think we should run the new alsactl daemon mode that helps with hotplugged hardware when its connected/disconnected. I am of a mind to run it as upstream are less likely to support a config where its not used, but I'd be interested in other people's opinions. It does help us cover the small number of use cases where pulse is not being used.

I'm going to go ahead and write an upstart job for it and enable it by default in the PPA for testing, but we can always revert to what we have now.

Thoughts welcome.
