Yep, pulseaudio has support for airport express devices. However, I
get really choppy sound with it, I hope you'll get a better experience

I think that's been pretty well documented.  Supposedly moving to the new protocol will fix things.

There's a pulseaudio plugin in the work using this new protocol, but
it's not ready yet.

So in general, I think you'll simply have to wait till they finish porting to the new protocol.  Once we do, I really think a GNOME Journal article describing how to do this with Rhythmbox would be nice.  How about one of you fine upstanding gentleman volunteer to write such a beast? :-)
