We worked on the new gnome-volume-control because pavucontrol is a "show
all the options underneath" program, just like the ALSA mixers were.

We wrote use cases, we checked what other systems did, and we intend to
present something to the user that's less complicated than showing up
all the knobs PulseAudio offers.

So shipping pavucontrol isn't a solution in itself.
