Oops, you're exactly right.
Even better, the auth-group parameter does exactly what I need: allows
access to all users in the jbraun group, without manual copying of the
cookie. :)

Thanks for the quick answer!

P.S.: relevant lines for the benefit of others with the same problem:
~jani/.pulse/default.pa :
| load-module module-native-protocol-unix socket=/home/jani/.pulse-native auth-group=jbraun
.bashrc (of all my users):
| export PULSE_SERVER='unix:/home/jani/.pulse-native'
