OK thanks. My apologies for making you rehash stuff that has probably been flying around on the jack list for a while.

Still, the average, non-jack-developers-mailing-list-following linux audio user should be spared from having to know all this stuff, and hopefully the various jack-flavor maintainers and distro maintainers are all working together to make this usable.

Still, if ABI compatibility isn't there, this feels kind of dangerous and could get very ugly.

I now see why so many people reflexively advise anyone having any trouble with linux audio to just get a livecd of a different distro and try that instead. If ABI's aren't compatible between the different jack's, then task of setting up linux audio with jack will fall out of the hands of most users and onto those who maintain custom, mutually-incompatible distros instead. Possibly not a bad thing, and we might be there already as people seek out pre-compiled RT kernels, but perhaps pushing linux audio even farther into custom purpose-built distros might have unintended consequences.
