I'm not an expert for pulseaudio but I think that the streategy is, that
pulse runs under user who is lodged. If pulseaudio runs under pulse, I
think that pulse works as system wide service. If it is true then
probably will be ok if you add an user to a pulse group. pulse-access
for example or something similar it depends on you system.

Hm, it seams that in Fedora is older version of SD. Which version you
have there?
