Funny, zynjacku is the same as jackrack, but for lv2. That is, zynjacku 
provides the same function as jackrack. zynjacku for lv2 and jackrack for 
ladspa. The problem with lv2 applications/plugins is that the lv2 standard 
has changed. If this means zynjacku just doesn't work, it may be time to 
be rid of it. It has become easy to build an LV2 as both a plugin and as a 
standalone jack client. zynjacku should be tested.
