You're right.  The actions themselves aren't that interesting.  For  
amixer, you don't even need a shell script for changing the volume,  
just spawn "amixer Master 10%+" or "amixer Master 10%-" to raise or  
lower the volume, respectively.  What's interesting about the module  
is that it returns the result of the change to the caller.  The idea  
is that you can then connect this to an OSD.  Daniel Schoepe already  
showed an example for osd_cat, and I plan on making something for  
ghosd as well in my copious free time. ;-)
