* Changed to code to get the root icon. Now it does not take into
account the source output, as in fact that code was not
differentiating between any particular case. The code was added in
the past in the case that we should differentiate between bluetooth,
headphones, etc... but it was never used. (LP: #1555831)

* Add changes to show up the microphone controls when an external
microphone is detected.
* This branch sets the last running player using accounts service
instead of gsettings. It also includes a new class
AccountsServiceAccess, to centralize all accesses to account service
* To avoid going too below the warning level we set the volume when
showing the warning dialog to the loud_volume level.

* This branch modifies the sound indicator on the desktop to only show
the playback controls for those players that are active or (if any
is running) the last one being active. (LP: #1213907)

* Fixing the playback controls when we have the playlist as the last
item in the player section. As number of items was 3 when having the
playlist section we were not updating the player controls and the
next/previous buttons were not working at all. (LP: #1245495)
