Not that I know of right now. The only plugins using this is faad/faac, a52dec and dtsdec, and they all use the simple scheme. I don't know how ALSA works in this respect, can you shine some light on that? The end goal is to make multichannel sounds to (for example) alsasink work easily, right? :).
