I believe that the acquire would always be necessary in
setup_transport(), since this is the only way to find out which the
initial state of the sink/sources should be.

What you propose would be possible only if the
PA_SINK_MESSAGE_SET_STATE handler would be allowed to decide the state
being set, something like "PA_SINK_IDLE was requested but I have to
set PA_SINK_SUSPENDED". But I thought this was not possible.

In any case you're right that the existing code could be simplified.
