Linux Audio Developer,

May I make a feature request here for your Linuxaudio application(s)?

Could you please add JackSession support? It makes working with JACK 
standalone applications a lot more user friendly. There are some apps 
who support it already and they work fine, like Yoshimi, Qtractor, 
Pianoteq, Ghostess, Guitarix, Jack-Rack, Ardour3, Bristol, Seq24, Jalv, 
Ingen, Connie, Specimen and probably more.

It is possible to use applications without JackSession-support in a 
session (via so called infra clients), it starts the applications, make 
the connections, but doesn't save the state. So obviously it would be 
far more useful if those applications would get JackSession-support also.

Qjackctl is able to work as Session Manager, so is Pyjacksm (and likely 
Patchage in the future).

According to comments on IRC by Paul Davis, it's very easy to add 
JackSession support to your application.

"Its really easy, just handle 1 more callback from the server. Torben's 
walkthrough shows what is necessary."

Torben's walktrough: 

Thanks in advance,
