Hmm.. in that case my patch does not finish the job - potential users still
have to modify the /usr/bin/start-pulseaudio-x11 binary in order to load the
modules the right way.

Couldn't we have something like '/etc/pulse/x11.conf' which would be read by
/usr/bin/start-pulseaudio-x11 ? I could cook something like that together,
but would that be accepted? Comments?
