The problem is not about being able to start the applet, which is at
worst a job of encapsulating it in a script. The problem is about having
the same basic UI in both cases.

For example, if you notice PA doesn’t work for you and disable it, you
will stop seeing the notification icon when logging in again. However
the GStreamer applet will not be started, since its startup mechanism is
very different and depends on the panel configuration.

OTOH, if during an upgrade the default changes to being PA, there will
suddenly be two mixer controls on the panel.

Hence the need for some homogenization. Given the various concerns that
have been raised about misusing the notification area, I think we should
re-focus on the applet idea.
