How about starting pasuspender in a clever way somewhere in, say, .login? It 
would need some dummy never-ending process as a mandatory argument, but I'm 
sure that can be figured out easily.

man pasuspender

I mean, if you are determined to hack your system to not use pa for sound, the 
cleanest way would be to use the "off switch" provided by the pa itself, right?

However, I believe you still need to manually configure audio players to use 
alsa drivers.

HTH, :-)
