I also think that the existence of a file is a bad way to determine
classic or dbus or whatever might show up in future.

Some env variable or similar would be a lot better, but it's also
important that this doesn't interfere with the manual start of jackd in
any way, so you can have it autostart with dbus, kill it, start it
manually without dbus.
