[pulseaudio-discuss] FAQ? How to Directly Connect Sources to Sinks, or Sinks to each other?

Greetings all,

[I'm not a member of this list right now, so please copy me on
 all replies!]

This may be a FAQ, but in setting up my multicast network audio setup
with Pulseaudio 0.9.7 using the RTP mechanism, creating local null sinks
via the FAQ-recommended method of:

   load-module module-null-sink sink_name=rtp
   load-module module-rtp-send source=rtp.monitor destination=<multic-addr>
   set-default-sink rtp

This ends up creating a new virtual sink that applications will now
choose instead of the PCM sink.  It does not route to the local audio
sink automatically as well.

I can add a local multicast receiver, but it seems kind of weird.

Is there a standard way to connect sources to sinks?
I.e. so I can connect the rtp.monitor source to the HW sound output sink?
