You should have tried it instead of poking in the dark. It even compiles
with a not so cutting edge system.

The answer to your question is that a microphone icon will show up in
the notification area when an application uses it, and only for that
microphone. So you don't need 2 applets to change the volume for your
webcam's microphone and the system microphone separately.

Notification area "applets" suck, but so do panel applets, which is why
there's work on-going to fix that (eg. gnome-shell).
