Yes, I like it also. It's fast and it seems to do what you expect from a 
session manager to do. Tbh, I like it more then JackSession at the 
moment, because the extra functionality it gives you and the pleasant 
Also I think it's a good decision to not make it dependent on JACK. Now 
you can add apps without JACK support (Frescobaldi, Emacs with 
supercollider?) to a session and leave others (with JACK support) out of 
the session if you want that. It also doesn't have extra dependencies 
for the apps with NSM support, which is a nice plus if you think about 
adoption of the API. An obvious advantage compared to Ladish is that you 
don't need Jackdbus or something, just plain JACK.

I also used aj-snapshot for script sessions, but JACKPatch, which comes 
with non-session-manager (NSM), is a good replacement for that.
I changed my JackSession and script sessions to NSM here. So far so good!
