Yeah, I looked into it before and this is basically why I didn't bother
implementing it; it doesn't buy us much more than we're getting
naturally from human testing anyway.
Well, except that a human needn't lift a finger anymore to check if
there's actually sound coming out of vlc/mpv/firefox/etc. ;-).
Now checking whether that's actually the sound that you expect or
whether it has the correct volume is an entirely different story of
course and I'm afraid that's something where we'll have to rely on
humans or $shinyMlAiSolutionThatSolvesAllOurProblems.
