i can choose to use JACK only, when i have pulse installed.. thats the way
i use my production machine.. "pulse is crap" is an opinion.. there is
nothing wrong with pulse, and no reason to remove it to use JACK without
pulse.. nor is there any compelling reason to remove it anyway, unless you
want to.. in the case that you want to, just remove it
