Yes, but only for wallpaper changing.  Aero Color and Logon screen both don't work.  Fortunately I built into Pulse the ability to restrict plugins by what platform and operating system it is running on (added that for when I was working on making Pulse work on the Mac).

Edit: Actually I was mistaken about Aero, it works great with no change.  I didn't think it was working because of that bug you mentioned where multiple outputs won't work.

Something else interesting about running Pulse on Windows 8:  I just got a laptop that came with Windows 8, both my main computer and laptop are signed into the same Microsoft account.  I don't know what the delay is, but when Pulse changes the wallpaper on my main computer it shortly afterwards changes on my laptop :)  Kind of a cool Windows feature that ties in nicely with Pulse.

That's cool... It should indeed work that way, as your background is synced on your account. However, for someone who doesn't want that behaviour, that could be annoying...
