Kindly consider adding the xrdp pulseaudio source/sink modules into the 
pulse ecosystem.

Xrdp is the leading open-source server package enabling remote control 
using the RDP protocol of both actual displays and entirely virtual 
displays.  Unlike the popular VNC protocol (at present), RDP natively 
allows filesystems, printers, other devices at the operator's computer 
to appear as native devices on the remote server.  It also has the 
advantage of allowing those limited to closed source osen near native 
access to remote open source options.

Presently there are only 'hackish' tcp driver ways to get remote audio 
to local users, none of them come and go along with access to the 
display, etc.

xrdp also has working pulse-audio source and sink modules which 
presently are a 'compile by hand, copy into /usr/lib/pulse-<some number 
here>/modules/' item.

Consider whether these ought best be part of native pulseaudio 
packages.   At the very least, optional packages compiled and released 
at the same time as pulseaudio packages.   Either way, maintained in 
sync with the pulse ecosystem.

The pulseaudio sink/source code is here:

There is an old website re: xrdp, the features mentioned there have been 
added to greatly since then.
