I downloaded the package. I had thought it was qt3, but the ubuntu package
src I downloaded is only qt3 because it uses qt 1/2 compatibility libs.

I was not suggesting Pulse would replace a good alsa mixer at all.
However, in the desktop world, it has taken over. So a lot of alsa mixers
are falling into disrepair or at least are no longer being improved. In
the audio workstation world a good alsa mixer is a must, but we will only
find one if someone interested in professional audio develops it. I think
in the past most alsa mixers were developed by people interested in
bringing desktop audio to linux.
