[PlanetCCRMA] pulseaudio successfully banished to the AC97 CODEC?

I just discovered an apparently valuable utility with the humble name 
"Volume Control" at

    Applications / Sound & Video / PulseAudio Volume Control

There is a Configuration tab where it appears possible to disable 
devices by setting them to "off".  I disabled everything but the AC97 
CODEC (the little audio chip on the motherboard), and now it appears 
pulseaudio is happily using that while JACK uses the EDIROL UA-25EX 
(hooked up via USB).

PA/JACK coexistence is peaceful for the time being.  Before, I had to 
be careful to start JACK before something like Chrome that used pulseaudio.
