if you do want stuff like that you can just open the audio device
directly via raw ALSA devices. Much the same way as it is handled
without PA. Of course the audio device will then be blocked, but yeah,
that's the way it always used to be.

As soon as CK works properly this won't work anymore howewver (in the
default configuration at least).
