pavucontrol should have been dropped from the default install the
minute the new g-v-c was pushed into Fedora. We forgot to do that. We
should do it now. End of story.

The reason I initially wrote pavucontrol is to have something to show
off the features PA has. Such as per-stream vol control, moving
streams between devices, profile switching, ... I didn't write it because
I thought that it's the way volume controls should be looking like. I
honestly don't like writing UI programs. My interests lie elsewhere. I
wrote it as a show case, not for UIs but for what PA can be good for.

pavucontrol is more powerful than g-v-c. But that's expected. I hope
g-v-c will eventually learn more of the features pavucontrol has
without becoming as cluttered, so that we can get rid of pavucontrol
