You should be able to enable a very inefficient way of making it work. 
Enable tcp based access to your 0.9.10 PA daemon and then set 
PULSE_SERVER=localhost in your ~/.bashrc or similar. The 0.9.19 libpulse 
client will then talk to your 0.9.10 pulseaudio server via TCP which 
stands at least a chance of working.

Lots of features wont work tho'.

I have to ask, why not just upgrade? If you are running a half-backed, 
patched up install, then you have to expect problems....
