[linux-audio-user] jack-rack wish-list

My apologies for cross-posting. This message is intended for jack-rack
maintainers:

First off, I think jack-rack is awesome app and I have been using it quite
regularly. As a result, I've come up with a small suggestion/wish-list for
this wonderful app:

1) it would be awesome if jack-rack, once it gets bounced by jackd (for
whatever reason), would have an option to restart with the same, already
open settings file, while recreating existing connections. I am simply
saying this as it has been quite stressful to have to close the app, reopen
it, open the settings file, and then re-hook everything in jack right before
the performance (and nearly impossible during one) when the clock is ticking
and audience getting restless. :-) Ultimately, it would be awesome if it
could automatically reconnect even if that would cause a nasty pop (perhaps
as an option in the preferences menu), which, after seeing cool additions
made to the jackd at LAC3, most likely soon we won't have to worry about any
more, if not already (btw, apropos the "pop"-less connecting of clients
while jackd is running that was demoed on the OSX version, does anyone know
whether it has been ported to Linux as of yet?).

Many thanks for taking the time to read and consider this suggestion!

Best wishes,
