I'd like the following:

* As soon as the USB card is available, use it for all audio 
output. I'm at home and I have connected my monitor speakers, 
and I also want to hear my ogg files through it instead of my 
built in laptop speakers

* as soon as the USB card is not available, use the internal 
card, regardless if I start playing ogg files or I start 
jack-rack for a quick 6 dirty test because I'm on tour and 
want to check something in the train or I just want to show a 
friend what cool audio software linux has to offer.

Best regards
