mpd has a special sink for PulseAudio, if you choose to use it that way.
PulseAudio is neat, but it uses too much CPU on my little old PC, so I've
removed it. mpd gets along with ALSA just fine, and I can give it permissions
via console.perms.d just fine. If you take away my ability to do that, please
explain how to grant those same permissions via hal/ck.

Sure, that'd be fine. Still, please explain how to set those. hal/ck is far too
underdocumented for average users (and far too important to remain that way).
