This also sounds like the better option to me. Someone who is interested 
in Studio just for the Publishing workflow may prefer to have just PA and 
no jack. Being able to switch gears depending on need without knowing too 
much about what is happening under the GUI could be a help too. Maybe 
having a standard setup that sets audio up by workflow with an expert mode 
that gives specifics. Standard mode would give latency in ms rather than 
128/2 for example. Expertmode would deal with frames/periods. A warning 
dialog that indicates connections will have to be remade or that some 
applications will need to be restarted (rackarak does not deal well with 
latency changes for example) Meaning "hey, save your work already".
