Back to the drawing board. I thought that was the exception not the rule.
So there's no way to tell if a Jack system port actually belongs to (our own)
 ALSA client?
I guess there's nothing technically wrong with listing our own ALSA ports.
Bizarre - It would allow feeding the app's own ALSA ports back into 
 the app as Jack midi ports. Might have its uses...
