It really depends. There are serious server rooms and there are home
servers that are more multipurpose. For example one could be a streaming
server so one could want to use it to listen to music too, but no X.
But in any case it is not the point. It is plain wrong to specialize
for a use (for example when logged with a specific dm). It shows that
the whole design has flaws. The sound server should be usable in all
situation from the start. Otherwise said, being able to adapt to all
sort of situation should be in its design.
Is multimedia streaming server/client the predominate outstanding
X-less real-world usage case that needs to be considered for pulse
integration ? What's the software stack(s) we are talking about?
Mythtv? mpd? elisa? Are there a configuration of a headless streamer
that can be played with inside fedora project controlled repository?
Or do they all use bits that live in 3rd party repos?
I think if we gave the people who grok pulse at least one specific
software configuration for them to spend a little time playing with,
then we might be able to get a clearer picture on how to move forward
in X-less multimedia server situations. I think people are sort of
talking past each other, it would help if we all had a target
configuration to duplicate and use as a reference.
