Looks like most of my replies here get lost in moderation for some
reason.  Let me just reply to this point: I find it makes good sense to
run the realtime code from a separate program in order to limit its
footprint.  Arguably that would also favor the C-written Jack1 over the
C++-written Jack2 since the latter has both a larger static footprint as
well as likely having a larger rate of code excursions into a
comparatively large standard library.
