I agree that  Richard is very good and  responsive and well interested
to a  good number  of efforts in  video development on  gnu/linux, but
still having read the code  so far, having tested the applications and
analised the architectures involved, i believe KdenLive will by far be
the best video editor around. i really hope it will have jack support.

i  know  Salsaman,  we  are  friends  and he  is  better  than  me  in
complaining :) OTOH is true we have no support. he crashed in my squat
a couple of times while in  Amsterdam.  He is a talented coder with an
old-school UNIX  approach - to  give you an  idea LiVES is  written in
perl  and  C  and  uses  ImageMagick on  single  frames...   good  old
philosophy of using existing components.

sorry to  contradict, but  i suggest KdenLive,  at least  to implement
jack support in it.

and i hope both proposals can be funded.

BTW, for your curiosity, i'm studying http://1010.co.uk/gneve.html :)
