[arch-general] Doubts with 'apulse'

Hi, if this queries must go to some other specific places (forums,
AUR, etc.) please let me know so I move them there.
1. According to the instructions in  «it is necessary to exclude
/dev/snd/ from Firefox' sandboxing by adding it to the comma-separated
list in about:config → security.sandbox.content.write_path_whitelist»,
but right now I'm using '$ apulse firefox' without that exclusion and
seems to work fine. Maybe that's outdated? (My system is updated.)
2. According to  «to allow ALSA programs to play while JACK is
running edit (or create) /etc/asound.conf» with this:
# convert alsa API over jack API
# use it with
# % aplay foo.wav
# use this as default
hint.description "Jack Audio"
Now, when I installed apulse, I got this instruction: «For using
PulseAudio emulation create a proper .asoundrc: $ cp
Is there any relation or conflict between those two files?
BTW, I simply forgot to follow that apulse indication, but it seems to
work fine anyway. Maybe it's not necessary?
Thanks a lot.
