Before starting this I should say I have *no* time in the next year, and
several more urgent work packages for Xfce. But, I do intend some day to
write an update to the mixer and volume daemon to use ALSA directly without
GStreamer. I cannot use PulseAudio so I really need it, but like I said, no

Now, the same thing formulated in PR-speak:

The official sound packages are the PulseAudio ones. The GStreamer 0.1
packages can be provided as a matter of convenience but rely on obsolete
dependencies. In the future, a replacement may become available for those
who prefer to use ALSA, which will not be recommended to be used as
default; though distributors have the last say on this.
