[LAU] alsa/xvidcap question

My editor at LJ asked an apparently simple question: In an ALSA-only 
environment (no JACK), how can he record system sounds and a mic input 
simultaneously when capturing his desktop with xvidcap ? He's working 
with an hda-nvidia chipset that I also have on one of my machines, so I 
can test any suggestions myself. So far I'm not having much luck 
recording anything other than the mic input with xvidcap. So, any 
suggestions ? Maybe some dmix or asoundrc wizardry ? Please advise if 
more information is needed.

Of course, this was ridiculously easy with recordmydesktop and JACK. :)
