Actually up to 140 now... and ready for some testing. I have a few GUI 
tweaks but the functionality is where it will get to for now.

ubuntustudio-controls pre1.5 (140) is available for testing.

The audio section is mostly complete. Auto connecting hot plugged USB 
devices does not work at this time. (meens I have not yet started on it)
The GUI is still getting tweaked... it will be 1/4 (or it is 1/3 bigger 
now) smaller tomorrow. Giving full names to the audio devices expanded the GUI 
width quite a bit. I am trying to make the GUI easier to understand :/ not 
my best thing. I have already added some text to add and remove (Add 
(Available) and Remove (Connected))

The Apply button can be either renamed to "Save settings" or it can also 
do a jack restart.

Things to try: create a new user and make sure you get a big red warning 
when starting -controls as the new user. click the fix button and the 
message should change to tell you to logout/in. Logout/in and the red 
message should be gone. This should work on another flavour even if jackd 
is not installed.

The USB auto connect will be interesting, but I need to do some work on 
autojack first so it responds to:
autojack start/restart/stop/reconfigure
