It's not particularly difficult to add. But given the very dismissive attitude
of anything not gstreamer from PulseAudio upstream, I couldn't bother.
Not to mention that I am getting quite annoyed with PulseAudio bug #799 on the
one hand, and the Gentoo guys complaining about the VLC workaround for it on
the other side.
So in my opinion, I have to say, use ALSA.
