Another option that has been canvassed is the idea of having the application
level sound daemon manage the connection with the system level JACK daemon.
Thus, you would have a complex pro-audio API and a simple bling-bling-audio

Certainly better than recommending ALSA or GStreamer as the preferred API
for everyone.
