We spoke about this on IRC and the conclusion was that the only current
users of this code are likely to be pactl/pacmd. It seems a bit overkill
to extend the protocol without any other users that we can foresee.
Coupling that with the fact that we're adding policy in addition to
mechanism with this API (for multiple modules with the same name), this
patch set stands punted.

Hopefully it was still good learning experience for poljar about API
stability and extending the protocol.
