But since I get absolutely no sound through headphones or speakers, I
can't tell if it's being toggled. :)

I've noticed:
- in order to get speaker output, 0x17 *must* be defined as the
speaker-out, and 0x14 *must* be listed as a line-out pin.
- in order to get headphone output, neither 0x17 nor 0x15 are to be
listed as the first line-out pin

Can you please provide a suggestion for how this is supposed to work?
Note that I only have access to this machine for another day.
