Because 99% of the average desktop user base actually want to have an
easy-to-use and configurable audio stack these days. Thus, Pulse is
now the default audio server for most distributions and Mate on Debian
should join the party as well.

With popular applications like Skype not even supporting anything but
Pulse Audio anymore, I don't it's wrong to make it the default choice.

mate-media-pulse is actually one of the first packages which I install
after installing a new box.
