ah, yes, but qtractor will also do the evil thing and spit out some mmc
when it detects jack transport state has changed somehow outside its own
control. eg. press play in qjackctl => jack transport starts rolling =>
qtractor starts rolling too => qtractor sends out mmc play command and
probably jackmmcctl will do the same :)...
