It actually sounds like there's a PulseAudio module called "cork" that takes care of this.

This would be a very nice feature. I like the feature on my Android MP3 player very much. The music is paused until the user hits the 'play' button.
Another nice feature on my player is that there are two separate volumes. When the headphones are unplugged, the volume goes to the level it was at before the headphones were inserted. When the headphones are plugged in, the volume goes to the last volume level it was at when they were previously inserted. Can be very helpful at times.

If any one really wants something now

It does require xautomation which can just be installed with apt-get install xautomation
Then just add it to the startup programs and it works decently for now
