[pulseaudio-discuss] Tolerating network failures

Right now, I'm using the module-tunnel-sink module on clients to send
audio to a central server (that is itself using the
module-native-protocol-tcp module).

If anything causes a client connection to go down (such as by
disconnecting an ethernet cable for longer than it takes a TCP
connection to time out), that client loses the connection to the server
permanently. Resurrecting the tunnel requires some manual action (such
as restarting pulseaudio) on the client.

Is there any way to get the tunnel to retry connections when they go
down? Networks are unreliable, it seems bad for Pulse to just fail and
give up when a connection is lost.
