Sounds to me like good opt-out documentation is in order. 🙂

Hi all,
For short, NO! I want to be able to shutdown pipewire in order to get instant
ALSA access.
This was a real pain until pulseaudio recognized what they need to do:
systemctl --user stop pulseaudio
systemctl --user stop pulseaudio.socket
killall pulseaudio

Didn't look at pipewire, yet. Finally, please consider to shutdown the
process completely as desired.
