I agree that there may be some cause for concern. As a pro audio user, I've been using jack and ardour for a long time. Why doesn't KDE simply code for jack? Adding two more layers doesn't appear to achieve anything. I could understand having Phonon talk directly to jack or ALSA, but GStreamer? If GStreamer provides something wonderful that jack doesn't, why not simply extend GStreamer?
