Sorry, what are you proposing to merge here?  Are there currently two 
different lots of Jack2 headers?  Or are you proposing to merge the 
headers from Jack2 and Jack1?  Or something else?

IIRC Jack2 currently has some structs which need to get built with 
1-byte alignment for the various struct fields (except on one particular 
platform).  Let's say the Jack1 & Jack2 headers got merged...  wouldn't 
that problem get amplified and possibly break compatibility for either 
Jack1 or Jack2?
