Nice! Tested here and works well. :)

This one's going to be a pain to do right no matter what we do - even if
when you know external speaker/mic aren't being used, you still don't
know if the things that are connected will have echo or not. I think
we're just going to have a global option (in paprefs?) and let people
decide whether they want it or not.
