I have no strong opinion about this.  Your implementation looks small
enough.  But, if Dmitry finds the input layer not suitable for such a
purpose, this isn't a good way to go.

I think the question is how general and how extensible these features
should be.  If it's just a jack reporting, there are bunch of other
possible implementations.  Even ALSA control API could provide a
similar functionality.
