I use it because of the simplest ever use case not yet covered by PA:
- PCM volume at 100% -> jerky sound

PA assumes that I have PCM at 100% and I only need to adjust Master,
this is broken at least in my card (intel8x0) because if I were to put
PCM at 100% I would get quite jerky sound (imagine a batteries fm
radio). Right now PA only allows me to adjust Master, which is quite
useless for me.

So what I do is having Master at 100% and PCM around 70%, if laptop
speaker volume (hw control) is not strong enough I go to gst-mixer and
adjust PCM up a little bit, giving away quality for some loudness.

Not having gst-mixer would mean either having PCM at 100% all the time
and getting jerky sound or having to go console or use some ugly thing
like gnome-alsamixer. If it's not hurting anyone, please keep gst-mixer
in the package.
