I agree with Paul and Peter. People cant be treating others like crap just because they are asking for help. If you don't have anything better to say, then just be quiet and filter, you don't have to contribute. I've only been on these mailing lists for a few days and I know most people aren't like this, but every time I see someone respond negatively, its not just a small insult, but more of a "rub it in your face" attitude.
Also to Phillip, you said something containing SNR, what does that mean? On Dec 23, 2011 1:17 PM, "Leonid Isaev" email@example.com wrote:

Can you suggest something better? I don't think so.
Yes, jackd would be much better. Pulseaudio is an unlucky choice. If there's no PA installed and people don't wish to handle jackd, ALSA already is able to do all what's needed. What was bad with e.g. arts?
Comparing jack and PA is something like comparing gnome and xfce. You can read about the differences at jackd homepage.
PA, jack, aRTS, esd, gstreamer -- developers select whatever they are comfortable with; any choice will leave someone unpleased...
For some people PA is an advantage, for other people it's an disadvantage. What's bad with enabling those who prefer PA to install it and for those who can't use PA to enable not to install PA?
Why is there this go/no-go type?
Exactly, that's why the common approach to packaging is to enable as much functionality as possible. Don't like it -- use ABS. Otherwise we can argue why xfce needs gstreamer, qemu-kvm needs bluez, and so on...
