I experienced the newer slot method as very good. I recommended somebody
else who had issues using the index way to test it and it solved his
issue too.

[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ grep
slots /run/media/rocketmouse/q/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
options snd slots=snd_hdspm,snd_ice1712,snd_ice1712

Building the package myself isn't an issue, however, there's no need to
do it:

"Until the maintainer updates this package here are the edits to build
- change pkgver to 2.1.1
- in the "depends" line change qt to qt4
- change md5sum to 46f7479524296e1057b19620635b1414" -

Just for Precise and Quantal, the versions are outdated, 2.0~rc2 and
2.0.1, https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/quantal/muse/ .

As long as list members don't sort by thread, but instead by Subject, it
shouldn't be an issue.

FWIW a good reason to prefer the free (and free as in beer) software we
already have to purchasable software, is the better support from the
coders for the free software.
