VLC 1.0.3-1 prefers alsa over pulseaudio

As PA is more up to date, and alsa configured to use PA for compatibility, it's
obvious that PA should have preference over alsa in the audio-output-type
Currently, in vlc, alsa is chosen even if PA is installed and configured, and
this leads to using PA through alsa - it's buggier, slower and unnecessary.
Upstream already fixed this problem here:
But unfortunately it didn't get to 1.0.3.
Maybe we want to wait for next release, or add a patch right now, I'm just
updating about my today's research findings :)
