I think the situation with jack is somewhat problematic, since there are
now three variants of jack, where jack1 and jack2 both can be run as
jackd - but jack1 and jack2 do not support the same stuff, and where
jackdbus, while a form of jack2 is not operated the way jackd is.
Perhaps it is a sign of an organizational problem within the jack
community? I would really make things easier if there was only one jack.
