FS#1169 - Remove dependency of packages on pulseaudio/libpulse

Similar to systemd, pulseaudio or libpulse is forced upon users as many packages require it such as kodi, gnome-shell (and thus also gdm), ffmpeg, gst-plugins-good, simplescreenrecorder, clementine, empathy, seamonkey (iceape), fluidsynth, mumble and qemu, Most/all of these packages can probably be compiled with pulseaudio or libpulse as an optional dependency instead.

Additional comments about closing:  

Hyperbola Milky Way 0.4 without PulseAudio.

Actually, instead, or in combination, could we instead or also add apulse and have whatever sound program use apulse so that programs you compile from source for certain purposes don't break?

The one I need is libre, its called wine-staging.

Actually... nevermind. I suppose alsa works well enough for that.
