That would be great. But right now we have an autodetect button that
will return the first working driver it encounters and then quits even
when there are multiple available.
And the first in the list would be aRts for most systems. Not really
the preferred one.

Would it be better to add some info to the audio drivers available in
that dialog. Like "Preferred" or "Works best" for example?
