Ehm, will that 
  - just add to the list or
  - just change the entry or
  - both ?

Point being, previously the mixer didn't have its "internal window" in
an external app... so users of the 4.0 mixer will not know what the
previously internal mixer is called now.
However, I do not want to clobber (i.e. override) the users settings by
forcing them into the internal mixer, but I want the (previously)
internal mixer to be in the list of possibilities, as if they called it
before, which they probably did (the internal version). 

  - user uses 4.0 (has mixer window integrated into plugin)
  - user sets in mixer plugin prefs that he wants aumix
  - user updates to head
  - user wants to use (or try) (previously) "internal" mixer, goes to
preferences, sees "hey it isnt there anymore", when in fact it is, just
named "xfce4-mixer" and external now.

I see, well, by default, it should be the text he set in the preferences
the last time, shouldn't it?

ok, i think a mini api from the panel for the plugins for command
entries is required here, as this gets unneccessary complex&duplicating,
see other mail to jasper :)
