To make testing of the upcoming version of Pulseaudio easier, there is 
now a PPA with daily builds of git master available at 
ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/pulse-testing, or 

So if you're running Ubuntu Natty or Oneiric, you can do this to install 
the new modules:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/pulse-testing
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

And to revert back to what's standard in Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
sudo ppa-purge ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/pulse-testing

You should be able to switch back and forth like this if it weren't for 
bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/801133 .

I've done my best to keep integration (such as routing alsa:default 
through pulse etc) but remove all other Ubuntu specific patches. E g, 
flat volumes is not turned off in this version. Let me know if I missed 

I'm running it here now and it seems to be working fine, although I 
haven't done more than just some random audio playback.

Oh and btw, depending on timing, the steps involved, and the varying 
workload on Launchpad's servers, expect it to lag up to a day or two 
behind. At least every now and then.
