That's exactly the use case. The mpd daemon runs all the time, no matter who 
is doing what at the console. While it's running, it should always be able 
to play audio. I'm not sure about Colin's point about starting pulse 
internally... mpd does have an optional pulseaudio sink, but I use it with 
an alsa sink.
