Funny thing is that I'm looking at the docs for pulse audio and no where 
so far is there a mention of jack.

In the faq,  "perfect setup", "first steps"...  It would appear that 
jack support for PA is/was an after thought. One could even get the 
impression that the people who wrote the pulse audio documentation 
believe that jack is redundant.

Now, if this is not a strategically motivated ommission to keep people 
employed working on pulse audio then I have to wonder what is the 
reasoning behind pulse audio being presented as the all in one solution 
for audio on Linux when jack is clearly and undeniably the sound server 
of choice for professional audio.
