New issue by nyanpasu64 on void-packages repository

### Is this a new report?


### System Info

Void 5.19.14_1 x86_64 GenuineIntel uptodate rFFFFFFFFF

### Package(s) Affected

godot-3.5_1 (technically outdated, 3.5.1 is out upstream but not in void-packages)

### Does a report exist for this bug with the project's home (upstream) and/or another distro?

_No response_

### Expected behaviour

Godot plays audio without stutters, mixed with audio from PipeWire apps. This is achieved by Flathub Godot on Void Linux.

### Actual behaviour

Godot is built with `pulseaudio=no` (, leaving it with only an ALSA backend.

- When it outputs to the system ALSA device, it prevents PipeWire apps from playing audio simultaneously.
- When it outputs to the alsa-pipewire package set as the default ALSA device, audio stutters continuously. (Is this a pipewire-alsa or a godot bug, and should it be reported there? PipeWire upstream discourages using ALSA's pipewire plugin, saying to prefer the PulseAudio API instead.)

Is there a technical packaging reason I'm unaware of, that `pulseaudio=no` is necessary?

### Steps to reproduce

1. Install and run PipeWire. Optionally install `alsa-pipewire` and run `sudo ln -s /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf.d/50-pipewire.conf /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf.d/99-pipewire-default.conf /etc/alsa/conf.d/`
2. Run Godot and start a game that plays audio.
3. Try to play audio from another PipeWire app while audio is playing.
