This is false.

I've already tried to point out the basics but I guess my hints weren't

* RB uses gstreamer for audio I/O
* gstreamer has a native JACK module
* you need to configure gstreamer's JACK module (the buffer sizes in
particular need attention)
* you need to tell RB to use the module (or tell gstreamer to do that all
the time)

It has nothing whatsoever to do with PulseAudio, which only plays a role
when RB is using gstreamer's ALSA module, which picks the default device,
which is PulseAudio on many systems.,
