Lennart - I'm not talking about PA. I've already said the way PA does
analog surround and S/PDIF, with its profile support, is a great
improvement. I like it. But the current counter-proposal for F11 is to
ship gnome-volume-control and no other mixer by default. g-v-c does not
expose PA's profile support. So no matter how great PA is - by this
proposal, we would *not be exposing* all that greatness by default in
F11 at all. People would somehow have to figure out to install
pavucontrol before they could get to that greatness.

The question is g-v-c vs. legacy mixer, not PulseAudio per se.
