As an uninvolved observer I am wondering why the dbus control interface,
if it is indeed only one of many potential interfaces using the c/c++
API, is not packaged separately as an optional add-on. If it is indeed a
compile time option, the design is flawed IMHO. Generally, the new
control API sounds like a good idea but why can't the new features be
exposed as new command line tools without dbus dependency per default?
So you want the dbus interface? Fine, just install jack-control-dbus or

Or am I not getting it?
