Also, it puts the volume control for the CD under the influence of the 
WAV slider, and not the CD slider.  You probably want quite different 
settings for your music versus your system sounds.  It also means that 
the sound drivers must properly share the WAV channel between the CD and 
the system sounds, and some don't do this very well.  The analog mixing 
is so much simpler.
