In the xdg-app situation the libpulse.so would typically be in the
runtime, and configured to work in this situation. Obviously existing
versions of runtimes would have older versions of libpulse, but that is
less important than getting things right for future sandboxing use.
(And such old runtimes could concievably be fixed if needed)
