FWIW, I run a headless home music server named musicbox that uses PA and
runs mpd.  When my wife or I want to watch a movie, we just redirect the
sound output from our respective laptops to musicbox.  Mpd has a PA
plugin, so it was quite easy to configure.

The only problem I ran into was in trying to get PA to run as a
system-wide daemon.  I had to track down why it couldn't
open /dev/snd/*, and finally worked out that it was a permissions
problem, easily fixed using ConsoleKit.

All that to say that except for the permissions problems, it just
worked.
