FWIW, I agree that's the best aproach.
But aren't you PA guys actively fighting this idea? You strongly advise against
system mode. PA tightly couples per-user settings and per-system hw access,
making such an agent difficult to write.
I'm seriously confused as to whether you're telling Halim here "you need more
effort than just dmix" or in fact "PA is not (and won't ever be) for you".
