I explained that already twice: with the help of HAL/CK we are

I think one of the problems here is CK runs against a body of shared
administration experience
in the community. There isn't a shared understanding of how to use CK
effectively to get common hardware related admin crap done, so as a
result any explanation on how to do something semi-involved as an
administrator which boils down to "it uses CK to do it" just doesn't
connect.

Yes, that doesn't make any sense to me - even the concept of 'active session'. If your X display is on a nearby machine (or several) but you want local audio, is that 'active' or not in PA speak? What if you have mythtv running but not related to a logged in session and also want to log in?
