I got sick of right-clicking on the sound button, selecting preferences, then selecting output device. Annoying!
So I finally got around to automating it, then even added buttons to the menu, and from there to the task bar. I'm on Linux Mint 17 (Mate) at the moment. Here's how it works, after the jump:

A Message to Our Customers
The United States government has demanded that Apple take an unprecedented step which threatens the security of our customers. We oppose this order, which has implications far beyond the legal case at hand.
