sorry for jumping in the thread so late, but having worked on
something similar I think a suitable project already exists. It is the
"resource policy", based on ohm, the git repo is at:


Through this tool it's possible to seamlessly handle whatever we can
consider a resource (CPU, memory, audio sink/source) depending on the
system state, which may change after particular events occur (e.g.
audio jack insertion or removal).

Many meta-informations like a proper wiki page are missing there
though, but still it's worth a consideration imho, as the project can
be considered as already quite stable (let's say it's at production
level for some targets).
