Default About new technologies in the upcoming release; request for release notes and documentation

I think pulseaudio is future technology, arguably not mature enough
for Xubuntu considering the Package Selection Matrix of Xubuntu
Strategy Document. But if it makes sound work in some hardware, in
which sound does not work otherwise (like Charlie Kravetz told)
Xubuntu users should at least know about it. Adding it as the default
sound system is one way to raise users' awareness about it, although
not sufficient way as it works in the background. If contibutors are
eager to take pulseaudio in, let them play. Users that will prefer the
old system, should be informed about how to revert. That should be
done in the final release notes and in documentation, to avoid
confusion and to save time of users.

Display drivers for Nvidia :
10.4 uses experimental -nouveau drivers instead of -nv drivers, which
cause some regressions and bugs. If that driver is really needed,
users should notified of such issues in release notes. Maybe users
could revert to use -nv drivers; I have not tried and I have no time
for that in this weekend.
