There is also module-switch-on-connect (see ticket
http://pulseaudio.org/ticket/706 ). I'm a little hesitant to whether it
actually does the right thing in all cases though, and Colin's work in
progress is probably a more complete solution, once it is easily
accessible, but I think it does what you want for now.

Michael, will you update the ticket with the changes you did yesterday?
