Hi Jordan,

I've finally got around to merging JackWASIO into the wineasio repository on
sourceforge.  I've not tested it yet.

It's actually not much of a change from wineasio-0.5 - my config file removed,
a different config file on non-Linux, uses mutexes rather than semaphores.  It
was originally written as a port of wineasio to Jack on OSX.

It's also using jackringbuffer, which makes the buffer handling code a lot simpler.

Anyway -- a couple of good ideas to merge back into the latest wineasio code
when I get time! :)

Thanks for giving me the push to get this merge done at last.

Glad to hear everything's working well, too.
