I propose that we bump the pulseaudio requirement to 2.0 so we can
land this nice improvement. Pulseaudio 2.0 was released 2 month ago,
which is admittedly fairly recent, but I suspect that 1.99.1 from
March has all the required API already.

The main issue is the impact on people using jhbuild on "last stable
distribution" such as Ubuntu 12.04 or Fedora 17.  Does pulseaudio build
from jhbuild on those systems?

I have not "built pulseaudio from jhbuild", but just to complicate matters, Ubuntu 12.04 runs PulseAudio 1.1 with the jack detection patches backported.

So for a standard installation of Ubuntu 12.04, installing the libpulse-dev header package makes the new sound UI compile - well, as long as you don't add the explicit requirement on PA 2.0...
