I just tried the sh, and there was no reaction from qjackctl. I didn't  
test if jack was running, because it would be nice to have to gui working  
(just dropped a line about it in another mail in this thread)

yes, that far I got. I've made a patch to control ardour transport, and  
also create jack connections quite fast through Pd. I don't know if it's  
not that appealing to anyone, or if no one noticed it, I thought there  
would be more reactions to it -  
(some improvements will be made the next version, when there's time for it)
