the thing is, many times the user is in a better place than the software to
name the ports. that's why i trended toward a JACK startup process where
the user would supply the information that would get pushed into the port
there's no way the driver knows that system:capture_1 is "kawaii k5000
left", but i do.
For Jack-2 I believe the meta-data support is currently just stubs,

last i heard, falktx is now maintaining both jack1 and jack2.
