It seems it's not, at least the version that's on Ubuntu 10.10. Or if it is,
it's way heavy, at 2-3Mb/s for just peak readings.

Yeah, it was pavucontrol I was using, not pavumeter.

A GUI widget would be more useful I think so that one could twiddle it without
having to drop to a command line.
But even more useful still would be to just use the peak reading mode and/or
the peak reading mode not consume 2-3Mb/s of bandwidth.
