What distribution do you use?
I had pulseaudio on kubuntu 10.10 but disabled it months ago, and everything 
is still working (better than before, pulseaudio and me never got along).

This is how it goes (If I didn't forget anything):
# apt-get remove pulseaudio

after that it falls back to alsa

For stuff that's using gstreamer, like clementine, you need to have an alsa 
plugin, ofcourse:
# apt-get install gstreamer0.10-alsa
# apt-get remove gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio

just check what doesn't work yet and why, or report back:)

PS: If pulseaudio is the xorg of sound, why do they promote it while going 
after xorg alternatives?
