   That's my question.  The export bus can have multiple input channels, 
but its output is just stereo, (and it's totally unclear how those 
multiple inputs are panned across the stereo) so how is jack_export any 
different from ardour's export of the master bus?  Or does jack_export 
somehow detect what individual tracks are connected to the INPUT of the 
export bus, and produce a multitrack WAVEX of those tracks?
