Yep, I have absolutely no problem with this. In other words,
~/.ffado/configuration is optional - right?
Why then does ffado-mixer in r1578 refuse to start if ~/.ffado/configuration
doesn't exist (ffado-mixer bombs with a bunch of python code complaining
that ~/.ffado/configuration doesn't exist)?
I noticed this morning that Pieter's checked in r1582/r1583 which look at
first glance like they might address this problem (they certainly have
something to do with handling the case of non-existent files). I will check
in due course.

That's what I thought.
