    Cool, I guess I'll have to resync this evening then. Looking forward to breaking my system!

    In my experience, pulseaudio was itself not often responsible for headaches. What WAS responsible for the headaches was distro's POOR IMPLEMENTATION of pulse audio (bad defaults, etc.).

    Hopefully after seeing all the negativity as well as getting input about what's broken, then the PA devs decided to finally fix it

    Like trying to get both desktop sounds and sounds from Music player daemon when run as it's own user?
    or trying to get my bluetooth adapter to automatically pair with my phone, and have my computer be a sink?
    or set up dual stereo outputs using the front speakers for one output, and rears for the other? (ex: music over the speakers, mumble over the headphones.)

    I could probably come up with a few more sort of main stream uses, and a huge pile of other ones, not least of which is lack of application support meaning everything getting lumped into the "Alsa device" bucket.
