Very cool, and have been enjoying it. However, I
wonder if Hydrogen is fully implementing JOQ's design.

Hydrogen retains the "slave" concept, now officially
inappropriate in California, and when in "slave" mode,
Hydrogen is unable to initiate Transport actions. It
only responds, ie hit Play in JAMin and Hydrogen plays
right along.

Jack, as I understand your design, one client must be
time base master but any client can initiate Transport
actions. Is this correct?
