I just did more checking and realized the one I was looking at was the
Babyface Pro, which has at the least, two more analog inputs than the
regular version described here.  (Didn't notice before there were two
revisions.)  I doubt the situation with mixer support is much different
on the Pro though.

Here is what I'd like to have in an interface:

+ hardware monitoring, preferably with a Linux mixer to control it

+ converter quality comparable to RME Hammerfall, or close

+ 96kHz, not because I think I need it for sound, but because all
   my existing projects are recorded at that rate and I need to be
   able to open them

+ USB connection

+ at least four analog inputs and outputs

+ stable on Linux

Am I asking too much?  :)
