[LAU] Jackd and Other Alsa applications at the same time.

While Jackd is runnning, other applications like Amarok and system sound
alerts cannot use Alsa at the same time.
But JACK diagram given in it's web site shows that any non-jackified
application can use Alsa Userspace Library at the same time.

And, Sampo Savolainan told me that, other programs can use the ALSA library,
but jack needs exclusive
access to the audio hardware it uses. Nothing is stopping a non-jack program
to access other sound interfaces you might have in your system.

How is this exclusive access given to Jack ?
