Jack in Ubuntu Studio

Hi there!

We are using Ubuntu in church for recordings and sometimes to display
a video or just play some audio.

Everything works great, when you do not have Jack started. When jack
is started all applications which do not support jack can not play any
sound. This is e.g. Rhythmbox and Totem.
I've seen some tutorials where you could preconfigure PulseAudio to
use jack by default. But this was quite difficult and required many
steps to do it and I didn't want to do it because I wasn't sure if
anything would work after it.

So here's my question: Ubuntu Studio is designed for professionals,
can't you configure it to use Jack by default? Jack could be started
when booting and PulseAudio would play everything over Jack.
If this isn't possible, could you just provide an easy way to do this?
