All jack source packages, i.e jackd-defaults, jackd2, and jack-audio-connection-kit will be in main. All binaries from jackd2 and jackd-defaults will also be in main. Only two binaries from jack-audio-connection-kit, libjack0, and libjack-dev, will be in main, the rest will be demoted to universe. This will enable all jack using packages to be built against jack-audio-connection-kit, i.e jack1, but jackd2 will still be the default daemon that people use.
