Common settings app for Ubuntu Studio

Two good ideas would be with this little setup app:
- "fix" the sound card number (alsa order, hw0, hw1, etc...) for people
having several sound cards (ie motherboard sound card + pci sound card);
- enabling access to firewire (both for video cam and sound card), with
adding user to group "disk"

This is for me the two things that can bother people using Ubuntu Studio
and don't want/know what to edit and how.
