Comment(by Alan Calvert <cal at graggrag.com>):

 Another refinement, 0.7, with a couple of significant issues resolved.
 Some notes on usage ...

 - The patch plugs itself into the configure/build system ok. It was
 developed against PA 0.9.10, so I can't see any version issues given the
 current state of PulseAudio & distros.

 - With PulseAudio enabled, the main audio device setting presents an
 option: PulseAudio:default:default.  The two extra fields allow nomination
 of the desired PulseAudio server/host and sink names to use. If no names
 are nominated, it checks the environment for $PULSE_SERVER and
 $PULSE_SINK, and uses them if set. Otherwise it just goes for the
 defaults. This stuff is only lightly tested. The gui is currently broken
 when it comes to editing those fields.

 - The buffer metrics are eminently tunable. There's over/underflow
 callback to assist in that. As is, it's lookin' pretty smooth.

 Fit & ready for other interested parties (if any!) to test & break
