So why not provide it for everyone? Not every sound app supports "alsa 1.0". But there are patches available for apps such as mplayer and libao. It'll take a short time for alsa to be the standard sound interface in linux. The Debian-Alsa Psychos <firstname.lastname@example.org>, who are maintining the alsa packages, have to follow up with the packages of alsa-utils etc. It is of course easy to build my own debs, but why not for every one?
