Until the easy stuff that everybody implements (mixer, interface to the 
ton of other sound systems) is finished. Fixing the bugs and the odd 
cases will not be sexy. Interest in PA will fade away, the fan boys will 
move to the next cool thing for which they can go out preaching and 
trying to convince the people of The Right Way. PA will start to rot and 
count as broken by design. Then the next sound system will emerge "to 
fix" all the PA breakages. Fedora and Ubuntu will move to this next uber 
cool sound system. Rinse repeat.

I would love to have a sound system that sticks around for a while. But 
I really doubt that that will be named PulseAudio.
