At second glance: it's not going to be that easy. The built-in player
makes use of mutex-locks which would need to be replaced with a
[lock-free] ringbuffer (Adding JACK I/O is still trivial but without
lock-free buffers paulstrech would be able to block jack-processing and
cause x-runs).

That'd be a good job for someone who wants to get started with JACK and
C/C++ programming.

I don't know if Nasca Octavian Paul is subscribed to this list and if
he's still actively developing it; but it would be the best to ask him

The missing ringbuffer is most likely the cause of the already known bug
"sometimes the playback is choppy" listed at the bottom of

If no-one else volunteers I could do it to take get my mind off things
during some short-distance flights next week-end.
