Yes, the hardcoded values sucks...

-1 seems to be already reserved for
"use first free slot", but maybe it
would be nice to reserve some value
for the "movable" index. For example,
the index -2 can mean "use the first
free slot, but move to the next one
when some other driver is registering
with -1 or explicitly to that slot".
Of course I have no idea whether this
is possible and acceptable, but maybe
the alsa guys can tell.

Well, they won't take 10 or any other
value I guess...
