The problem is that Pulseaudio should be backwards compatible with
Alsa/etc. Esound/Alsa/Jack/etc., which Wine has support for, were all
considered the 'perfect audio solution' at one time or another, but
now, they're considered archaic/inferior. Pulseaudio is likely to have
the same fate. AJ doesn't want to add _another_ driver, which will
require more maintenance in the years to come, have more bugs to fix,
etc. Wine works fine with Alsa, and if Pulseaudio supports Alsa, it
should work fine. If not, fix Pulseaudio.
