I tried this (but with jackd instead of qjackctl).  It works as
advertised after I created an empty
file /etc/security/console.apps/jackd.

Pardon my ignorance, but one thing I noticed is that it actually runs
jackd as root, which means that the user can't terminate it with Ctrl-C.
Is this expected and is there a solution?
