No, that's exactly what I'd like to address. Jack does what it does (and very
well too!), but if the app (zyn/yoshi) doesn't conform to jack's requirements,
things aren't going to go well. So yoshi does need to improve the way it relates
to jack, especially during it's "private moments" such as patch changes.
