I don't have any arguments against the source_dont_move, but I am
concerned about the sink_dont_move part. You may want to listen to
your music on speakers, headsets, HDMI, etc. Why would you restrict
the playback to the sink selected when you loaded the module? I can
see this interfering with the accessory management/audio policy, at
least in Meego. Falling back to the default sink should not add any
