I don't usually use it to suspend pulse, I use it to reload it with
different settings. I have a surround setup which shows up as 2 alsa
devices, so I have 3 different surround layouts using pulse. A "clone"
one which clones the front speakers to the rear, and two regular
surround setups, one which works correctly with Totem, the other which
works correctly with mplayer. (Basically I have 3 different ways of
loading module-combine.)

Is there a better way to do this that can be scripted relatively easily?
