The point was and is that we don't want yet another half working sound backend 
in Wine. We will have to maintain the Alsa one because there are things PA 
won't be able to give us by design, like HW mixing and lowest-latency direct 
access which is needed for gaming.

Of course, as you said, if someone has patches and intends to maintain it 
we're happy to accept it. But I think none of the current Wine sound 
developers(aka Maarten) has any intentions to spend time on a PA backend.
