    Well, I was discussing it today with a colleague and I think his arguments
    are convincing (citation from memory):
    "From the point of a kernel developer and kernel internal programming
    it might be better to put it under Input, but the kernel configuration
    interface is written mostly for end-users who might/will not know about
    kernel internals, so most people will expect this option under Sound."

    Would it be so bad to put it to Drivers->Sound->Misc->PC-Speaker?

    Thanks,
    Bernd
