Your "facts" are opinions and assumptions, mostly about putting words in
the mythical "pulse fanboy's" mouth. Not to mention totally unhelpful to
the discussion.

Your previous email indicated sounds could be heard, but only stereo sound.
Afaik that's the case for most 5.1 and all 7.1 cards. How is that different
from cups not supporting advanced options in my printer? Because pulse is
the only existing sound server?

You can't and won't use pulse, fine, just don't use it. Jack or pure alsa
still work. Just stop pretending that your arbitrary criteria for pulse is
in any way an inalienable truth. Just to summarize, it seems your two main
gripes are lack of support for semi pro cards and being "forced" to use it.
The former is not likely to change, the latter is patently untrue seeing as
how you are already not using it.
