Ah, I thought maybe that's what was meant - why both at the same time.
Well, I figure I'll add switches only if necessary, otherwise if they can both 
 work together, why not let them?
Someone might have devices that only work well with ALSA and other devices
 that can only work well through Jack midi (like FFADO?) or whatever.

Actually you're right in a way, I am planning to add 'disable' switches,
 and it *should* rightly have them, in case users don't want one or the other, 
 but default for now will be both at the same time. Unless things go sour...
