Speaking just for myself, PulseAudio did not work for me until F-10.
Now it works, but only with the "tsched=0" hack (I did not report
anything because I didn't care much about PulseAudio).
Thus killing the good old loyal OSS in favor of PulseAudio does not
sound right to me. Maybe we should wait a little longer for pulseaudio
to mature.
