Where does JACK fit into this? It's aimed at a completely different
set of users from the other sound servers for Linux.

The requirements for pro audio, eg. music recording, sound for film
etc. are totally different from those of the average desktop user.
A single sound server that tries to do everything for everybody
sounds to me like a potential nightmare of conflicting requirements.
