While not usually necessary, Pulseaudio can be run as a system-wide service.

http://www.pulseaudio.org/wiki/SystemWideInstance

I don't know if the instructions work on Fedora (The example is for
Debian), but hopefully someone more informed can enlighten us on that.

I also don't know if the vt sessions also start pulseaudio if it isn't
running. At least I have had audio working nice when using a vt.
