Yes, on ubuntu 9.10 I can switch on the fly with Pulse between HDMI and 
A2DP output, or output to both simultaneously.  I just re-tested it, as 
there's been quite a lot of change in the A2DP support... never can tell 
what works one day to the next.   Should be pretty stable now, though 
with release imminent.
