gnome-volume-control doesn't provide any chance of changing device

Description of problem:
gnome-volume-control doesn't provide any chance of changing device. I don't want to use pulseaudio and want to use alsa, but gnome-volume-control doesn't allow it. Previously it was possible.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Wanna change device?
Just like in fedora 8 possibility to choose device.
Isn't it regression?
Changing what device to do what?
In F-8 you have in menu File -> Change Device -> and you can choose from a list alsa, OSS, PulseAudio...
The output devices and input devices show up under their own tabs.
We use PulseAudio, we don't show the underlying ALSA devices, and certainly not OSS devices.
And why not show ALSA devices? Now is only two choices: Delayed sound with PulseAudio or not any sound. People who want normal playing sounds should go to another desktop?
Then file a bug against PulseAudio please.
The volume control uses PulseAudio, it doesn't use ALSA. And working around the problem by showing ALSA devices doesn't actually help us at all.
