It's of course hard to find reliable numbers anywhere... maybe Smolt
could be put to
fetch some, though (It already reports if SELinux is enabled, for example).

For what it's worth, I've used pulseaudio in Fedora on at least five
computers of various ages (built roughly 2000-2008), none of which
have had any major trouble with pulseaudio.
