Sure I can do that for myself but that's not the point.

I was specifically asking if there will be a configuration option
somewhere to handle this (I think common enough) case so that you can
decide whether fast switching users means killing audio or not.

It seem to me that this PA thing has the noble goal of making audio
easier to work with on a Desktop, and then you expect people to fiddle
manually with ConsoleKit/PolicyKit to make a trivial configuration
change for a common case?

Simo.
