Yes, i was needing it :-)

mplayer is my jack favorite file player because it plays lots of audio
formats, multichannel, and does video!
In some occasions i need to connect to another jack-app or non-initial
hardware outputs. Actually i was doubting trying this hack or wrapping
mplayer with a script that redoes the connections.

I like he option in mplayer better -- and i'm also for promoting it to
the mplayer project.
