...and it should be i18n'ed...

I doubt it is possible to do it automatically. At least an app needs to 
ask the user. When running GarageBand (am I going to be crucified 
now?!? :) and I remove the USB card, I get asked if I want to use the 
onboard soundcard instead.

I think it's just fine that ALSA numbers the cards. It's up to the GUI 
programs to prompt the user with "human readable" names.

BTW: I once told Paul that JACK would lock my machine when removing the 
USB device. The current version doesn't do so, instead JACK properly 
quits. That's a huge improvement, guys!
