I completely agree, and have similar patches sitting in Bugs 28723
(don't set period time) and 28282 (request ALSA buffer time near
requested MMDevice buffer time; needs more thought), although I was
waiting for feedback from users before submitting.

I have no problem with this patch getting in today, though it is late
in the cycle, yeah ;)
