I am sure it is. In my case I have other reasons for making sure Pulse has
no access to ALSA. I have found that pulse will try to use any alsa device
it can find for sync and that this causes xruns when pulse is bridged to
jack as well as trouble when putting jack into freewheel. The pulse-jack
bridge is not properly buffered and works best if jack is the only
"device" pulse can see.
