[Ardour-Dev] Ardour and jackdbus

Then new Linux audio session handler Ladish, requires, whether you like 
it or not, jackdbus (at least till version 1.0) to run. It is likely 
that Ladish is useful for people and that they start to use it. I did 
some testing with it and it seems that having jackd and jackdbus (both 
from same jack2 source) installed on one system is not the ideal situation.

So people who want to use Ladish may end up with only jackdbus installed.

Now I'm doing a bit of research how to deal with this situation best and 
how to prepare for it, personal and as 'Linux audio world'.

Now my question is. What implications does this have for the use of 
Ardour. Are there disadvantages to use jackdbus with Ardour instead of 
jackd? If they exist, is there a way to make this disadvantage as small 
as possible?

Thanks in advance,
