Well, my comment (from the point of view of applications rather than
library development) was not so much about portability as simple
convenience.  Regardless of which method is ultimately used to
establish proper audio scheduling, it would be nice to be able to
handle it through the same audio API as I am already using.  PortAudio
and JACK APIs both contain some support for this, PulseAudio is the
odd one out for me.


As a point of interest and comparison that has very little to do with this debate,  I just noticed that pulseaudio *is* being used in the Palm Pre


While Jack and Portaudio are not.
