yes and no. ALSA is part of the planetccrma-core-* meta package
(together with the kernel and midishare at this point). So the best way
to upgrade ALSA is to do:
  apt-get install planetccrma-core
(or whatever you choose when you installed originally). 

Currently there is a 1.0.3 version of ALSA in a testing repository that
you have to manually add (temporarily) to your sources.list file (in
/etc/apt/). Just copy the line that contains "planetcore" and replace
"planetcore" with "planetedge". Then "apt-get update" and "apt-get
install planetccrma-core" should give you the latest. 

I should have released this last week but I had no time.
