As mentioned earlier, PA may be run as system daemon. However, I do
not recommend that.

What I recommend is running it as a session/user daemon. Generally the
daemon is designed to run per-user. However, some modules currently
assume to be run per-session. Since currently multiple simultaneous
logins per user are not really supported by GNOME anyway, I don't see
it as a problem that PA in some areas acts as a per-user and in others
as a per-session daemon. Except for the console login case we can
safely assume that per-session and per-user is the same thing.
