dear Mr Yaro.

I suggest to read again the first message from the list. It doesn't ask 
for opinions about pulse on how good or bad is.

Keep your opinions for yourself. You are not forced to use pulse if you 
hate it, pulseaudio is optionally unless you are using gnome.

Starting GNOME 3, we will include support by default. This it happened 
some time ago upstream but WE keep it out, until now.

PLEASE, but PLEASE keep your junks out on my inbox
