[pulseaudio-discuss] pavucontrol -- server selection?

can pavucontrol be used to control the volume or streams of a
remote server? if so, how does one specify the server? there's
no usage message, and PULSE_SERVER doesn't seem to be honored.
so, assuming it must be local, i still can't get it to work. when
i run it on the same machine as the server, i get a "Connection
failed: invalid server" error.
any ideas? (i'm on ubuntu, so the version is 0.9.6)
p.s. is there more documentation planned for the pulseaudio
utilities and commands? honestly, a statement (quoting from
the website) like "There is not much to say. Just run
pavucontrol and see for yourself." is kind of insulting to a
user looking for help -- why have a documentation link at all?
even a usage message in the program saying "there are no options"
would be more useful.
