Possibly :) I initially wrote "100% crash free", but then I though about
what evidence I have to support that claim, and I realized that I can
only say that Pulseaudio doesn't crash always with these patches.

Thanks for reminding - I think this has been discussed before. I'm for
deprecating the sink and source port info structs (or at least cease
further development).

Not having the proplists in the sink and source info structs makes
"pactl list sinks" implementation much more cumbersome, if we want that
command to list the port properties, but I think it's ok to print the
port properties only with "pactl list cards".
