I say if xfwm4 is already handling this, why duplicate code? Read on...

Why not? I was unable to find the topic in the forums. I'm guessing you
are talking about bug #372, correct? Is there an issue getting xfwm4 to
recognize the keys? It seems it would be just as much of an issue in the
mixer IMO.

I believe using a keyboard shortcut that runs amixer should be do this
quite well. For non-alsa systems it seems there would be an equivalent
command, although I could be 100% wrong about that one.
