	Yeah. JACK is very nice from the perspective of the Pro Audio
community, since all the Pro Audio software in the Linux world pretty
much requires JACK.

	Of course, I don't think that JACK was ever intended to be used in a
consumer audio solution, so it doesn't have that OSS/esd/arts layer. In
general, if you feel like hacking on JACK until it Just Works and has a
nice GUI (though qjackctl is nice for most things), it would be a good
FC inclusion.

	However, in its current state it's more useful to Pro Audio enthusiasts
and home-studio users than it is the the general public.
