i broadly agree with you. however, the question is whether s/he wants
to learn about software synthesis or interacting with a HAL for audio
interfaces. if the former, then i still tend to feel that despite the
recent small but annoying problems with JACK, such a a person is
better off avoiding the HAL layer and working at the level of
abstraction that JACK provides. if they want to learn everything, then
sure, just do it all themselves.
