"autoconnect" makes it (slightly?) harder to use snd in situations where
the destination (or source) of the audio stream is not the sound card.
It also ties the creation of input/output Jack ports to the capabilities
of the soundcard. Most Jack applications do not (by default)

An option for that would be great...
