Wow, it allready exist. Hey, wine-people, this driver is really needed for
real-time audio-work, and for programs as sound-editors, multitrackers
and interactive dsp programs as pd, jmax, and a lot of others. Artsd
(f.ex) is not an alternative in its current form, and probably never will
be either. Its something else. I guess Paul or some other competant person
can explain a bit more why jack is so important.
