Not as far as I can tell.

And in any case this begs the question of why one would have to install 
non-standard tools to access functionality that (a) people are likely to 
need to access and (b) was previously accessible using standard tools.

(I understand that you are trying to be helpful and solve my particular 
problem for me, and I appreciate that, but since I can already solve my 
particular problem with alsamixer, as yucky as that is, I'm much more 
interested in the general problem that most users aren't going to be 
able to figure out how to modify their sound card settings.)
