[pulseaudio-discuss] Hal detect and multiple outputs

I have Intel HDA audio hardware with both a digital (S/PDIF) and
analog output. When I used module-hal-detect pulse only provided one
sink, 0, which was the analog device.  I fixed this by manually
creating two alsa sinks in pulse config, one for hw:0,0 and hw:0,1.

Shouldn't pulse and hal been able to automatically figure out that I
have two alsa sinks and given me the option to choose?
