Pulse ?

A bit tangent to the disscussion...
Latency issues aside, I've been experimenting, to no avail, to be able to
receive audio from my firewire device and output it to my onboard audio.

I have not been able to get pulse or alsa to show up as an output in Jack.

In this case latency is not an issue, I just want to avoid having to switch
physical cabling back and forth.

Not /really/ accurate. I never said anything about the core-devs. :)
JACK was in Main at one point but was demoted. (I'll try to get the
exact reason later) But there are lots of people (besides audio users)
that would like to see JACK back in Main. It's just gonna take some work
but is on our radar for this (Jaunty) release.

It should also be noted that using the Pulse-JACK plugin just adds
latency and that hard-core users will just use JACK. The plugin will
help new/casual users and people who want PA/JACK apps to talk to each
