For MIDI internal Linux I guess there are no layers, excepted of bridges
between ALSA and JACK that might cause issues. perhaps I'm mistaken, but
I never noticed an issue for a stable DAW.

Take care to keep backwards compatibility, some people e.g. still use 64

Other stuff at the moment is in a transition state. You never know what
services to start and stop by /etc/init.d/foo and what by the command

Better wait with editing until we all are forced to use GNOME3 or Unity
with hard dependencies to upstart or systemd, sorry I couldn't resist,
since current Xfce at the moment is a PITA and the upstream situation
makes me taking a look at FreeBSD now, of cause not for audio and MIDI,
but I will test this too.
