It works as an abstraction layer between audio programs and sound sinks 
(or in the case of jack, sound servers) so that you can create audio 
programs the are more portable between various platforms.

I have portaudio compiled with jack support, but have been unable to get 
wired to compile and run correctly. I can get it to build with a little 
work, but I can't get it to run properly. (I suspect it's most likely to 
do with the fact that I'm using wxGTK built against GTK 2.6 rather than 2.4)
