"Never" probably only means terribly long. :-)

If one takes the ALSA todo list, that is massive (it is so long in fact,
that we have not had time to write it all down!), sort it by priority,
then divide by the amount of ALSA developers time available, for this
particular feature, the time to implementation is getting very close to
"Never".
