You say that a hypothetical NSM level 0, adds nothing to what JS
delivers, but that's not true.
When I want to save a session in JS, I have to make a new folder. If I
want to save a slightly changed session, I have to make a new folder or
choose a existent folder. If I do the latter, the gui ask me if I really
want to overwrite it. I choose 'yes'. (This is what you could call
pretty cumbersome). In one case, someone did choose the /home/user
folder... and lost all his data. Ok, you've versioning now in
qjackctl... There is no way in Qjackctl to add apps without JS support
to the session. It is not possible to quit a session without saving it,
so I have to close every application manually.
In NSM on the other hand. I make a new session, add and remove apps on
the fly from a nice centralized and quick GUI interface. It's even easy
to add apps without NSM support (or scripts) via the GUI. If I change a
session, I'm just able to save it without making a new folder or
overwrite it. I am able to close a whole session and to abort a whole
session (without saving). As a user can expect, all apps in the session
close. Moreover it's possible to duplicate a session as a manner of
using templates. It's very easy and fast to change between sessions. I
am able to use session over the network very easily. I have never the
risk of overwriting my precious data. I' m able to add applications
without JACK support to NSM (Frescobaldi notation-editor, Emacs with
If you say that NSM adds nothing then a) you didn't try it and don't
really know where you're talking about or b) don't think that the NSM
stuff mentioned above are valuable of any kind for a user.
