Under the news section, it indicates that any problems with Jack have 
been resolved, so it should be able to be used with Jack.  I'll 
experiment with audacity and recordmydesktop and Jack, and let you know 
what happens.  I'm visualizing something like starting audacity, then 
jack, then recordmydesktop.  This feels klutzy, as recordmydesktop 
starts recording when I start it from the command line.  Maybe I'll send 
the developers a question, and see what others are doing.
