Bug Description

I'm really missing a volume control docklet in Docky, and it would bi nice if it works like AWN's. Also, it should not be hardcoded to use PulseAudio, since some people disable it (Linuxant drivers for Conexant modems completely screws up PulseAudio in Ubntu, and then almost everything falls back to ALSA).

Most likely we would have 2 controls, one for ALSA and one for PA. This is because PA has capabilities that are quite different from just ALSA and we would want to maximize on those capabilities.

This applet should have two nice features:
- Hovering the pointer over it shows the current volume.
- Using the mousewheel on the docklet also change the volume.

@Mandx: I believe Rico's branch already has that and more. ;-)

I recently discovered docky and was expecting to find some sort of volume control as well. This will make a great addition but it should have alsa or default backend that justworks without pa. Keep up the good work, this dock is looking nice :)

Didn't see this option in Docky, was this never implemented?
