As far as I'm concerned the major ones are known: the biggie is input
switching, after that it's just bugs where Pulse's slider does not
properly control the volume because of some idiosyncracy of the
card/driver. Lennart has said input switching in particular will be
implemented only for F12. Honestly, I totally expect that by f12, g-v-c
will be good enough to be the only GUI 'mixer' installed by default. I'm
proposing this as a stopgap for a single release.
