[pulseaudio-discuss] What does pulseaudio use all the cpu-cycles for?

Ever since Fedora switched to pulseaudio, I wonder what pulseaudio does with
all the cpu cycles it consumes.
When watching a mpeg4 video using mplayer, mplayer (using software decoder)
consumes only slightly more cpu time than pulseaudio simply mixing that
single sound-stream.

Don't get me wrong, this isn't a rant - I am just curious.

Thanks, Clemens
