This is simply *not true*. 

The server name is an optional parameter for jack_open().
All my own apps that use Jack have a command line option
to select a server. And any dialog used to configure an
app's  audio interface can have a field offering the same
choice (with 'default' or an empty string as the default).



A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
