Yeah, I thought of that and checked it a while ago, expecting a "duh" moment. didn't happen...didn't see it there by any name at all.
I'll go ahead and close this. Also, I found that Pavu isn't just a "master" settings program. When I run xmms, I can set it to put a signal out to the speakers or USB. Each program, I found is controlled as each program is running. Context sensitive. Wasn't aware of that.
