snd_mixer_selem_is_active() has been ignored so far since I wasn't sure
what it really meant.

Seems the proper way to handle and *inactive* element is to hide the
slider/switch/enum widgets completely.
Alternatively they could be greyed out. But showing dead
widgets would probably just distract users and waste screen space.

Btw. I'm still working on a alsamixer-qt4. There've been just so many
changes in the background that it takes some time to stabilize
everything again. And there're still open issues (mostly QT stuff).
So I would estimate two or three more weeks for a new release.
