I've never tried this, but if you set up the plugin in your asoundrc
with a name, you should be able to point the pulse output to it while
still having the the default alsa device go to pulse. Something along
the lines of:

load-module module-alsa-sink device=yourbluetoothdevice

in your default.pa.

I think that should work, but I've never tried it myself.
