This might be rather sth. for pkg-alsa-devel - is anyone here subscribed
there? Does anyone here have a connection to ALSA-devs?
Torben Hohn has recently /greatly improved/ the JACK alsa-plug .
His patch only touches src/pcm_jack.c . It has not yet been merged
upstream  but JACK users would really benefit from this.
For 64studio I'm thinking about rolling a small package that simply
diverts /usr/lib/alsa-lib/libasound_module_pcm_jack.so from
libasound2-plugins until things have settled down upstream.
That'd be a somewhat ugly solution but I still consider it less ugly
than branching alsa-plugins downstream.
Are any of you pro-audio packagers interested in helping out?
