I'll agree with that.  Audio really should just work unless the hardware
configuration is particularly strange.

Now, the *severity* of the bug of course may depend on how many people are
affected, etc.

(FWIW, pulseaudio has always worked great out of the box for me with no
configuration required, but then so has every sound system on Linux in
about the past five years.  Before that, it was a mess, but a bit before
pulseaudio, around the time ALSA became the thing everyone was using, my
problems generally went away and haven't returned, even through a few
changes in how sound was implemented.)
