 What kind of logic did you have in your mind? Is checking for the default
 socket file existence enough? The system-wide daemon could be configured
 to listen on some different socket file, or only TCP connections could be
 allowed. A simple default socket file check might make sense anyway, but
 it seems to me that generally it's better to just clearly document somehow
 that if you're enabling the system-wide mode, then disable the start-
 pulseaudio-x11 script (or any other system for starting per-user daemons
