no, because it uses the existing communications channel(s) to talk to
clients, and this does not go over a network. JACK Session saves the
state of the clients of the server; processes running on other systems
are *not* clients of the JACK server.

it would be the responsibility of the net backend to somehow gather
and store the state that is needed to restore things. that would be
hard, since it has no way to instantiate processes on a remote machine
(which could be running an arbitrary OS).
