It seems a recent 'emerge --sync' is wanting to downgrade my Jack...or
is it?

It looks like some dependency of FluidSynth is steering me toward the
Jack package included in main Gentoo, version 0.121.3-r1, and trying to
remove my package from Pro-Audio overlay.

However, I know there are some differences in numbering scheme for Jack
depending on whether it's the SMP or non-SMP supporting version, and
also there's the DBus versus daemon thing. My current Jack (before
emerging) is SMP with DBus (it can be controlled with the jack_control

Should I be concerned about this? What correlation does 0.121.3 from
main Portage have to in the Pro-Audio overlay, and is this
really a downgrade?
