I use a usb soundcard per display.I log in at each display to detect the 
sink of the usb soundcard that is for that display.
Than a script to set the default sink per display, this script is called 
in the users' autostart function.
If the user logs in, the script finds out what $DISPLAY and sets the 
default sink.
The .pulse dir should be empty.
I did some work regarding udev rules and consolekit stuff, but it is so 
difficult to re-configure remote systems if somehow a hub is broken or 
replaced on the computer.
