that's very true. But unfortunately as a) ecasound doesn't select the
mixing mechanism by looking at the asked configuration, b) averaging was
the only mode for a long time and is still the default, this is now the
case. And due to backward compatibility (not messing anyone's old
sessions), it's hard to change the default behaviour.

Maybe we can change this was ecasound 3.0.0. ;)
