[pulseaudio-discuss] Correct User Setup on an Embedded Device

We're trying to get away from running PA in system mode on an embedded device because of performance. We have the problem that our app must run as root, however. Right now I'm doing this:

We have two users on the system, root and the app's
The app's user logs in and runs PA
The app's user sudos the app to run as root

This works great except it breaks bluetooth audio support. Is this the correct way to go about this or do we need to change our approach?
