As far as I know, an asoundrc dosen't help in this case.  Ubuntu already
has a default asoundrc which automatically creates an alias named after
the device.  I can't use this with pd since pd only takes the alsa hw or
plug indexes which can change depending on what gear I'm using.

I've also read on the list that you can use -alsaadd to add a device to
the list from a custom asoundrc, but this only adds the device to the
gui menu which I would need to access via a fudi startup message ala
"audio-dialog 0 0 0 0 2 ...".  Even in this case, I still have to have a
damned index to the menu item!
