maybe i caused that confusion when i posted some jack-related bug to the
opensuse tracker a while ago, last fall or so. had a brief mail exchange
with the jack packet maintainer about how jack2 would eventually
supersede jack1 (at that time, it seemed pretty clear given that there
was no smp support for jack1 on the horizon), and that distros should
look into that issue eventually. i should have followed up on this, but
forgot about it. maybe some note ended up in a wishlist somewhere.
unless somebody else here has been in touch with the suse guys about it.
