Straightforward via being a toy.  You can't express anything that isn't
a command line option in it, and you can only set up a single jack
configuration.  A single line with a command in it isn't a configuration
file, it's a shell script with the hashbang missing ;)

Jack needs a /real/ configuration file.  One good example of something
to go there is port aliases, and setting (or un-setting) the default
auto-connect ports (voila, the old auto connect problem solved).
