I don't see how the process name or a process identification is a proper 
primary key for sound clients. They should rather use the alsa primary 
buffers requested by the apps rather than the process identification. They 
could still use the process name as a description for the user interface, 
using anything not directly sound API related like PID, process name, ..., as 
the identifier for a sound client is broken IMHO.
