I think the reference was to qjackctl and not jack itself. The GUI can 
only run one instance of jack anyway (and one instance of itself). Running 
two jacks generally means at least one from CLI which is where server 
naming makes sense. Also, more than one jack, although useful where 
needed, is generally not for casual/first time use. It takes some 
understanding beyond point and click.
