you use the alsa loopback-device instead of the jack-plugin.
Since the "snd-loop" kernel-module is a fully-fledged alsa-device,
application support is in general much better than with the jack-plugin;
however you will have alsa_in/out (or zita-a2j/j2a) running all the time
to bridge the loopback-device to jack (depending on resampling- quality
and CPU it uses 1-3% CPU and eats up a bit more of a laptop's battery).
 the .asoundrc is only used to set the default output to the loopback
and to allow concurrent access of alsa-clients to it. It's not required
(you could configure most alsa-clients to directly output to the
loopback-[sub]devices), but handy.
