All modules in PA git now know parameters "sink_properties" which can
be used for what you want to do. Instead of passing
"sink_description=foo" you can pass "sink_properties='device.description=foo'"
which would have the equivalent effect, but also allows to set
arbitrary properties on the sink.
Thanks anyway for your patch, it's much appreciated.
