The argument is there in the current development version of PulseAudio.
I have a (recently acquired) habit of going through the recent commits
looking for code changes that need documentation changes too, which is
why I've added the new "channels" argument to the wiki page already
before the feature is in any released PulseAudio version.
I guess it would be better if I didn't update the wiki immediately.
Instead of editing the wiki immediately, I could collect a list of
things to update, and do the updates only after the release is out.
