Well, there's no special support for multiple cards or multiple volumes
in volumed, but that's ok imho, the point is to have a tiny daemon
handling multimedia keys for general volume. If you want more specific
control, then there are other tools for that.

Now, for the fact that it doesn't work with pulseaudio, indeed, that
looks like a gstreamer-pulseaudio bug, since it works just fine with
alsa when using gstreamer-alsa.
