Is this one of the round clamshell-style iBooks? I don't think I was
able to discern from the DACA mixer-control code I used as a reference
how to do it, so I just never took separate channels into account for
the DACA mixer-control code when I wrote that stuff. (Frankly, I was so
happy to have mixer control at the time, balance control didn't really
cross my mind.) I'm guessing no one's played with it since then.
