You shouldn't be using padevchooser anymore. It is obsolete.

padevchooser basically does what pax11publish does: manipulate a few
properties of the X11 root window. You can view them with "xprop -root
| grep PULSE". Manipulating X11 root window properties is pretty easy
from your own programs. Just check the pax11publish source code for
more information.
