Thanks for the tips, I had guessed about this :^)

However, I still don't know if I need to start the daemon at boot time (if
so, how? su to user pulse before starting the daemon? doing it as root?).

I guess alsa starts the daemon when it needs it (that what the "pulse" alsa
type is for, right?) but then how do I tell it to use such or such config
file? Is it hard-coded in the daemon? Or is there a central config file that
must be present no matter what? Then, how do I create and edit such a file?
