Hi again!

Testing has now completed and the feature has landed in Ubuntu 12.04 
(kernel version 3.2.0-11.19 and PulseAudio version 1:1.1-0ubuntu5). 
Three bugs were discovered and fixed before the feature hit the archives.

I would like to thank mc3man, htorque, ronoc, xyzzyman, little jo, 
cking, arges, smb and apw for helping out with testing!
