Well, this has always been a priority for us. Experienced users pretty 
much now how to make this stuff work for them but it is actually a 
pretty hard problem to solve OOTB for novice users.

As part of a GSOC project last year we started working on jam-control, 
this is an app which will allow people to switch between jack and pulse 
or both depending on their needs. Similar to what the cadence app is 
doing, but it may turn out that we'll just use cadence when its ready. 
I'm looking forward to contributing to this project over the next 
release cycle - will certainly keep the list updated with developments.
