Pulseaudio being abandoned?

F10: PA was nice. It worked well. Audio volume levels were consistent
and correct. Audio output was acceptable and responsive.

F11: System-wide volume levels are manipulated by Rhythmbox and Totem to
random levels (mostly 100%) on start-up and you can change it by simply
changing the volume inside of RB or Totem. Why was this change made? You
might as well dump PA and go back to bare ALSA if this is the new
standard. Playback can sometimes become jumpy on even the most power
multi-core 64-bit 3ghz systems.

The new gnome-volume-control prog (not applet) has some nice, random
race conditions with PA. They'll compete for 100% CPU time and
occasionally PA will shut down because of this.

Yes, bugs[1] are filed. It seems Lennart is MIA? I haven't seen any PA
updates in a while and bug reports are not being attended to.

A bluez update the past few days just crapped on the, once, working A2DP
