Here's one for you all - my keyboard has a scroll wheel, and I currently
have it hooked via dwm to run an external shell script to
increase/decrease the volume. I find that if my machine's under
heavy-ish load (or if I scroll a lot), multiple processes open and all
try to increment the volume to the same target. Too many cooks spoil the
broth and we end up going quite slowly.

I was thinking of linking dwm with alsa and doing all of the volume
control inside dwm. Before you start flaming, I realise dwm is a window
manager, not a volume control, which is why I'm writing to the list -
anyone got any smart ideas about this?
