How does this behave WRT existing software destinations, and multiple hardware
MIDI I/O ports?

My usual setup is 2 MIDI hardware inputs, 3 hardware outputs (two keyboards and
a sound canvas), and a variable number of software MIDI destinations, some of
which are ALSA only, some are switchable for either ALSA or Jack.
