I don't think it's possible with the normal pulseaudio setup, since the
alsa cards are added after everything in is processed. The
module-udev-detect module dynamically loads and unloads alsa cards as
they are sensed by the hardware. It's a limitation of the
module-loopback code that the requested source/sink must exist at
loading time.

One thing you could do if your machine only has one sound card on a
non-removable connection (i.e. not a USB device) is to statically define
it with module-alsa-card and disable module-udev-detect.

A more resilient option might be to make a script that checks for the
presence of the loopback and loads it if it's not present. Then just
fire that script unconditionally before launching your programs that use
