Bug Description

The unity8-session snap can't play sound due to a number of reasons.

* media-hub does not know about snap appids and thus refuses connections from unity8 (bug 1642611, has workaround branch but no real solution yet) -- for now we just don't include media-hub and fallback to base pulseaudio.

* Launchpad builds our store snap with a configuration that leaves us with an inconsistent gstreamer setup: bug 1646139 (and bug 1646145 doesn't help either)

* The pulseaudio snap does not support user sessions yet.

== Fixed issues ==

* The sound indicator doesn't launch because of hardcoded paths (bug 1629009, has a branch)

* pulseaudio crashes on startup (bug 1645797, has a branch)
