timemachine is a different kind of program. Its a GUI thing that is ment 
to be running all the time.

This is just a quick tool to get the sound going into your loudspeakers as 
quickly as possible into disk. It happens quite a lot when I play with PD 
or jamin, for example. What happened previously, when I had something 
cool going, was that I had to start timemachine (which name does not 
start with jack, so I allways use a lot of time remembering its name), 
connect the correct jack ports into it in qjackctl, and press the 
recording button. In addition, as you say, timemachine use this (and I 
really mean it) stupid w64 fileformat by default, and I very seldom 
remember to use the -f flag to override that. Instead of doing all that, 
now I can just write "jack_capture", and it starts recording immmediately.
