I've maybe missed the discussion, but is it worth having both:

Doesn't the former just call the latter with a NULL proplist anyway?

While I appreciate the symmetry with the existing API, I'd say avoid the
cruft and just call it pa_stream_new_extended() which implies both the
format and the proplist. WDYT?
