Hm, maybe I need some enlightment about the issue,

All I want to do is to remove the sound system track widget from 
pavucontrol because AFAIK this widget is only functional on systems 
which plays event sounds using libcanberra. Am I wrong? Does that widget 
manages the system sounds' volume in a platform/mechanism independant way?

I didn't say anything about dependency hell. I already packaged 
libcanberra and it's already in our repositories so no problem with 
linking to it ;)
