Universe hasn't been disabled by default for... years. If the first
command you run after a vanilla install of Ubuntu 8.04 or 8.10 is
"sudo aptitude install pavucontrol", it will work.

Not sure when universe was first enabled by default, but it was a
_long_ time ago... anyone still using an Ubuntu release that old
shouldn't expect any meaningful functionality out of the PulseAudio
version shipped with that. It was probably still called polypaudio!
