So, are you saying the standard motherboard beeper/speaker (the one that
beeps when you hit too many keys at once or that bios is telling you I
am booting up ... any minute now beeeeepp) is a microphone that feeds
sound back into the system and mysteriously debian is allowing it to be
recognized as an input device.

I do not claim to have reinvented the wheel here, but how can this be
acceptable if it does hold any truth?
