Replying to myself:

I built jconv on my 32-bit machine, it sounds beautiful with lucia.conf 
after some adjustments.

However: It is, as Fons makes clear, an alpha project intended for a 
more full-featured incarnation. At this time it has no GUI and depends 
upon configuration files edited by the user. The configs aren't 
difficult to figure out, but I'm sure that aspect will discourage some 
users. That's not a big deal right now, given the status of the app. And 
again I must stress that it *sounds* great.

By contrast, the SIR plugin is a mature application with a directly 
usable GUI (no Ph.D. necessary; hi Jan!) and excellent sound quality. 
When Fons has his GUI convolver finished I'm sure it'll be a contender, 
but meanwhile the SIR plugin can hold the line just fine. :)

Maybe it's about time for a Linux convolution reverb showdown ?
