It's a nice effort Daniel, but i suspect this will go the same way as

I've had a decent run with mumble, and use it regularly with jack, but
that's with the alsa-jack plugin, and a .asoundrc setup to use that
I've just read the comments from the devs, and i think you're battling
uphill with this one, particularly as slicer seems to be quite happy
with pulseaudio as his Linux default (and this sounds just like
skype's justification for not adding a 64bit option, imho). I think
he's missed the point about JACK, but he's the dev, and will decide
what he wants to do, even if others think he may be missing a valuable
Good luck with this, and i hope you're ultimately successful.
Podcasting isn't going away, and the easier Slicer and his other team
members make the use of mumble, the better the quality of podcast, and
the easier and quicker process of production, for a wider range of
users, both amateur and professional. If he's so inclined, perhaps you
might mention the inevitable increase in street cred he and the mumble
team will get in the podcast and wider community. (If this is
desirable for him, of course)
Imho, mumble could wipe the floor with skype (it does here already for
the sound quality), but it does need jack support as a valuable added
option to expand mumble's reach further.
