this is the reason why newer JACK versions always call the "system
hardware ports" something that just starts "system:...", so that you can
move ardour sessions (and other connection setups) between machines
(even linux + OS X) or different audio interfaces, and have them (often)
still work.

the old design where the actual interface name shows up in the port name
has been something that we realized was a mistake.

that seems pretty odd, for sure.

like all(?) OS X apps, Preferences are on the app (main) menu bar, under
the name of the app ("Ardour").
