Comment(by Krejzi):

 I can't confirm any of these.

 VLC works just fine with "Pulseaudio" selected in audio preferences. It
 even builds flawlessly against pulseaudio 3.0

 Mplayer also does fine with -ao pulse.

 {{{

 }}}

 I have .asoundrc that redirects alsa output through pulse and it doesn't
 pose me any problem. Even system sounds in KDE work.

 {{{
 $ cat ~/.asoundrc
 pcm.pulse {
     type pulse
 }
 ctl.pulse {
     type pulse
 }
 pcm.!default {
     type pulse
 }
 ctl.!default {
     type pulse
 }
 }}}

 I've built it (upgraded from 2.1) today using same instructions as in BLFS
 book.

 Even multilib version works with Skype and Wine using Pulseaudio via 32bit
 Alsa Plugins.
