Forgot to mention the coolest feature that's yet to really be used by
many folks:

- Network-transparent audio.  We all depend on network-transparent X11.
 So why not be able to forward sound as well across an ssh link?  Even
more cool is the ability to have remote sound devices and transmit the
sound to any device on the network arbitrarily.  Perfect for home media
servers.  Listen to music or a podcast in the den, then transfer it to
the home stereo computer system, or any other computer on your network
where you happen to be at.

I'm a bit surprised at your cynicism regarding the tremendous benefit of
pulseaudio, and the amazing amount of possible things that can be done
with it.
