Generally no-one does resampling... well thats not true. A sample player 
does resampling no matter the original SR as each note is different. 
Filters use SR changes as well.

Jack does none of the resampling. Jack opperates at the audio card SR and 
expects it's clients to keep pace.

Choose your clients wisely. As with any DSP code, some is good, some code 
is not.
