Hi Lennart,

Turns out this is more easily said than done.  The new libcanberra 
dependency is a fair bit of work to resolve.

Also, I'm not clear why the udev detection code isn't considered 
experimental in pulseaudio.  Deprecating module-detect already seems a 
bit hasty.  module-udev-detect depends on a version of udev that's 
barely 3 months old.  Additionally, even with the revised udev, some 
fairly graceless means of making that work are employed.

Based on the shortcomings of udev exposed by pulseaudio's usage, perhaps 
pushing for a more appropriate udev messaging sequence/device 
enumeration/driver status makes sense?
