Nonsensical jack sensing - A bug day idea

Hi all,

Users of Linux with ALSA on laptops and other mobile devices have for
years often been presented with the fun and games of sound working great
but then plugging in headphones leaves you with no sound or sound coming
out of speakers and headphones etc. This annoys many and makes distros
look poor to the new user in some cases. Could we have a bug day for and
in conjunction with ALSA to collect as much per user hardware and what
they set to fix it i.e. the 'options' in alsa-base to maybe allow the
ALSA project to make things better for all.

Your thoughts would be appreciated?
