I just realized I sent this only to Ray.
Sorry, that you'll get this twice.

Sure, I'll have a look at it by the end of the year.
Have an upcoming performance to take care of first.

Hehe, that would be great.
Especially lilv, liblo and ardour.

This has the additional benefit of other packages being able to depend on it (although I'm not aware of any requiring it), for e.g. realtime video processing.

AFAIK, pulse still has contradictory realtime settings to jack, when ran in a joint fashion. So, for 'real' work I usually disable it or have it only take care of the internal (laptop) hardware. Any opinions on it?

As a sidenote: I think software such as skype (if it has to be run), should be jailed and restrained to the maximum amount possible. It has access to the user's home, is closed source and well, you know the rest ;-)
