Well, I agree with Christoph.  

I think all his points were important for the LAD community to hear. 

Christoph, you may like to send those points to the Developer list as
some developers don't subscribe to the users list.

The GUI programs should have that functionality IMO, you can always
fiddle around as much as you want in qjackconnect if you like.  Having
the functionality in a program doesn't restrict you from using an
external program like qjackconnect.

I think the Linux audio apps have come a long way and I'd be excited to
see developers take the next step and make their programs easier to use
and more polished.  

IMO anything that makes a program crash (like losing Jack connectivity)
is a bug, pure and simple.  The program should handle this gracefully,
without question.
