So you'd want to monitor the noise level through the computer's
microphone, and adjust the playback volume based on that? I'm not aware
of any existing solution (I didn't do any searching, though, there
could very well be something out there). This sounds like something
that doesn't really need any special support from pulseaudio, you just
need an application that does the monitoring and volume adjustment.
