Hi Giso,

The slowness of jack_connect came up earlier on this

It becomes an issue in Nama when a track gets its input from
twenty or thirty JACK clients, especially since Ecasound
needs to re-connect JACK clients every time the audio engine
is reconfigured (which Nama does frequently).

Paul Davis suggested I use jack.plumbing instead.

So Nama now rewrites the jack.plumbing config file
as necessary.

I had to work around some problems that jack.plumbing dies
if it happens to poll while the Ecasound engine has
ports registered but not yet able to connect.

That may not be a problem for the applications you run.
