Well, Akos is trying to use the aoss library, which is designed to do
exactly that: map OSS devices to ALSA devices, that are normally out
of reach of OSS applications, which among others are those defined in
asoundrc-configuration files.

I don't think, it is possible to use channel 3+4 of a Delta card
directly through ALSA's OSS emulation, so aoss might be the only way
indeed. But I never used aoss for anything besides playback, so I have
no idea if it should work, sorry.
