My goal is to do this from the command line so I can put the commands 
in a script and execute the script when the system boots. I can not 
count on the user to understand anything about configuring the sound 
system. It just needs to work by itself.

FWIW - the tunnel sink I created, sink-DGTM, does not show up in 
pavucontrol or padevchooser. It only shows up when I do '$ pacmd list'.
