If there is such a mechanism then it isn't working.

The discover maintainers ended that discussion with a decision not to
fix the bug in discover1.  The bug _may_ be fixed in discover at some
time in the future, presumably post-sarge.  The remaining question is
how alsa should deal with this situation.  Conflict with discover[1]? 
Add a paragraph to the alsa-base README telling how to fix the problem
by hand?  Add code to the alsa initscript which rmmods OSS modules?
