From the technical viewpoint, there shouldn't be big obstacles for
us -- JACK2 is ABI compatible with JACK1, and it's being used already
on Packman repo, IIRC. I think Dave already has managed jack2 stuff
in his repo for some time, too. Thus the movement should be
relatively simple.

But, my question here is whether this is allowed now for FACTORY /
11.3 at this moment. I know this kind of thing should have been
handled through FATE. But if we do this, it should be done quickly in
a timely manner. So, I'm asking just here for a quick decision.

Comments appreciated.



One of my SDR programs (sdr-shell) has needed jack2 for quite a while
now and I have been building and using it locally from svn using waf.
Something in Milestone 4 causes it to fail, probably an option problem
which I am currently trying to track down.
I for one would welcome its inclusion.
