I've been sniffing around for answers to this question for the last year
or so. The things people tell me are:

[1] gnome depends on pulse, so we have to have it (which begs the
question, why do we need gnome?)

[2] the ubuntu hierarchy insist we use pulse (which begs the question,
wouldn't we be better off working under debian?)

I think it's a bit of a joke to have an audio-focussed distro in which
the first things I have to do post-install are disable some of the
default features and manually edit settings.
