I think the original confusion was in your terminology.  Most people would
consider a "client" to be an application which uses jack to transport
audio.  qjackctl starts and configures jack, but it doesn't really come to
mind when you ask about jack clients.

Choosing your tools based on which GUI tool kit was used for creating the
application seems like kind of an ass backwards way to do something.
What is your real goal?  Do you want to avoid having to install Qt shared
libraries because you are really low on disk space?  Do you have some sort
of ideological grudge against Qt for some reason?  Do you just not like
the way qjackctl looks?

It seems to me that ideological grudge is the only reason which really
absolutely requires the solution of an app written using the GTK tool kit.
 The other problems have possible alternate solutions.
