This gives me pause. I need to understand the implications better.

Say I follow your recipe for pulseaudio deliciousness, enjoy my fill,
and now kill my desktop session and restart mdm, and the next user who
logs in (using the greeter) is not me. Will pulseaudio be hosed for
them? To prevent that, will I now need to add a
re-enabling-default-per-user-pulseaudio incantation to my leaving
ritual? (Is that even what I would be re-enabling?)
