A quick look around with google didn't indicate anything, except
instructions on how to enable dmix instead of/in-addition-to pulseaudio.

Dmix seems to be the solution that alot of the pulseaudio critics suggest as
the silver bullet to audio problems... maybe the argument about dmix can be
iterated once more in a wiki page, so there's a more permanent reference for
that information?
