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
