Hmm, this shouldn't work. ;) '-y:xx' always affects the last specified
audio object, and ignores chains altogether.

Not a bad suggestion at all. It's just that implementing the above would
require relatively big changes in core ecasound code. The biggest
problem/feature is that chains don't have a "position" attribute.
Currently only audio objects contain this info.
So at least for now, the aim is to keep the cmd-line simple, and put the
complicated stuff into ewf files.

Well, I'm definitely not against this. It's just one of those millions
things I haven't had the time to do. But if someone is willing to work on
this, that'd be great. Hmm, I might help in the Finnish translation. :)
