Hi Michael,

well there is: i have implemented this before in a more complete way but have not yet been able to provide tests as David asked me to. Please have a look at this post for the patch:
If you don't have any objections, i'll try and come up with proper tests by end of the week and commit this, with some fixes.

i'm planning to give this a proper kcontrol setting once this has gone in...Any further comments or such - bring 'em on ;)
regards marcel.
