Well, that doesn't do time synchronization AFAICS. It's not suitable in a
general purpose audio pipeline.
One of the simplest protocols for audio passing is certainly RTP, and it
is much better understood than RTMP. RTP is a very good building block
for audio systems like the one requested here, and PA in fact has
support for it in a limited way. But it is only a building block really,
which means that a clean solution would require some hackery on top of
what exists right now.
