[pulseaudio-discuss] Spaces in proplist in module args

In current master the following line in default.pa causes pulse to fail loading:

load-module module-null-sink sink_name=null
sink_properties=device.description="sink description"

A description string without a space is OK, so is
load-module module-null-sink sink_name=null
sink_properties=device.description="sink\ description"
(correct with the space in the description, but
load-module module-null-sink sink_name=null
sink_properties=device.description=sink\ description
(with the space escaped, but the property value not quoted) does not work.

Is this how it is supposed to work with the new json loading, or is it
a parsing bug?
I would expect the first example with just the quoting and no escaping
to work. (This is also how it is documented on wiki:Modules)
