Not really. ardour-2.8.7, calf-plugins and ffado will be part of
squeeze, this equals 98% of my daily work.

Unfortunately, this is only half of the story. For the occasional use of
jack, jackd2 is easier to use, because it can suspend pulseaudio.

In the jackd1 case, the user needs to shutdown pulseaudio or any other
application blocking the soundcard.

I wrote a small client that can run on TOP of pulseaudio, but it's just
proof of concept and doesn't support recording. And nobody cares about
this idea. ;)

I'm completely undecided. Whenever I write "Ok, let's stick to jackd1
and upgrade in squeeze-and-a-half if need be", I remember that at least
Free, Jonas and me are using jackd2 for quite some time, so why not
switch immediately... ;)
