Yes, of course. When I do Skype -> Options -> Sound Devices -> Open
PulseAudio Volume Control, the window that actually pops up is
pavucontrol. As indicated in the first email, this is what I was using
to fiddle with the input devices and the configuration.

rajulocal@hogwarts:~/x$ readlink -f `which pavucontrol`
rajulocal@hogwarts:~/x$ dpkg -S /usr/bin/pavucontrol
pavucontrol: /usr/bin/pavucontrol
rajulocal@hogwarts:~/x$ dpkg -l pavucontrol | grep ^ii
ii  pavucontrol    2.0-1        amd64        PulseAudio Volume Control
