As time has passed by, the version should now be bumped to 32.

I noticed that neither this patch nor any other patch implements
querying the sink/source latency offset. I think it's pretty important
to be able to also query the current offsets, if there's a mechanism
for setting the offsets.

Adding the querying support should be pretty simple. Basically you just
need to add a new field to the pa_sink/source_info struct and send the
value in the GET_SINK/SOURCE_INFO command. pactl should be updated too
to print the value in the "list sinks/sources" commands.

This patch looks good otherwise.
