Comment(by Quozl):

 http://dev.laptop.org/~quozl/z/1SKO9d.txt is an example of a change toward
 the alternate solution of repeatedly updating the slider.  however, it
 does not function correctly; sound.get_volume() is not showing any change
 as a result of alsamixer or keyboard changes.

 i also found that the acme code has a four second timeout, after which it
 closes the alsa device.  if the palette is popdown, followed by a five
 second pause, followed by popup palette, then the displayed value is

 therefore i conclude that the alternate solution is impractical, and
 nd_mixer_poll_descriptors is the better solution.  unfortunately i don't
 know how to build the sugarext components for testing.
