This is a design issue. For jack to not cause xruns when connecting
and disconnecting clients, it will have to be rewritten. Stephane Letz
did a c++ rewrite which is able to do this at the cost of an
additional process cycle. I'd sure want this feature, since I do a lot
of jacking (no pun intended). It's super numerary the possibilities
when having jack work this way and I'll certainly vote for it. A quick
practical example is making jack instructional videos where you have
to jack in and out several clients. It would be bad if you made a
video with a click every time you connected a client;).

For the current jack implementation to do this without clicks, you
would need two processors on your motherboard, SMP.
