Do you know if the Kdenlive team are interested in JACK at all? Do you
need to be running KDE to get the most out of it?

No need to apologise :-)
A key factor for getting mainstream distro support for a video editor is
the software patents on codecs issue. What I've suggested to Richard,
the developer of OME, is that the editor is packaged in such a way that
it can only import/export raw DV and Ogg Theora files.
If the user wants to work with MPEG video, then they have to locate and
download extra libraries, the presence of which is detected at runtime.
That way, I reckon the mainstream distros will be a lot happier about
shipping the app, and it can start to get a decent sized userbase.
