It's gotta be easier than a port to Qt, which is what I was first
contemplating when I stumbled on this project.  I tried running it here,
but when I saw it was Python 2 code using pygtk, I started to look
elsewhere, and drew a blank.

Two things I do miss from JACK that PulseAudio has:
- ability to adjust gain on a source
- seamless handling of multiple audio devices

Right now I use PA for my general audio tasks (music playback, system
sounds), and anything specific, I have a dedicated sound card for use
with JACK.

Hopefully an upgrade to the audio device will let me do more through the
one audio device (JACK and a Logitech G930 do not get along, hoping a
Audio-Technica ATH-G1WL will do better than 16kHz sample rate).

jack-mixer looks like it'd be a step in the right direction to solving
the first pain point.  If someone gets it working with modern tools,
I'll definitely take a look.

Otherwise, I'm inclined to replicate a work-alike.

I haven't lost my mind...
  ...it's backed up on a tape somewhere.
