The only ways I can think of are using RTP (and I'm not sure
it's actually faster) or writing a program that uses less

I think I've heard (as far as it's possible to "hear" things
on irc) that in future pulseaudio versions there would be a
way to properly bridge sources to sinks, but because it
wasn't Lennart who I heard this from, this is just a rumor
(there seems to be a lot of those nowadays...).
