TBH, this sounds not that unreasonable. However, you should be aware
this means essentially, that we are forking upstream. Moreover, this
also implies a totally different workflow compared to our other
pkg-multimedia packages.

For consistency reasons, I'd prefer to not go that way with a team
package. But I don't really work much on jack myself, so don't put too
much weight in this opinion.
