On my system I still have mpd-pulse, gnome-media-pulse,
gnome-settings-daemon-pulse, and sdl-pulse. The middle two at least will
disappear with gnome updates I'm sure. I wonder whether the other two
should just be left as is (without pulse support in the [extra]
packages). Not a big issue, compiling from the AUR isn't a pain =)
