This, added to /etc/pulse/default.pa, seems to make it work:

### Load Delta 66 hardware
### (it is not recognized automatically)
load-module module-alsa-sink sink_name=delta_out device=hw:0 channels=10
load-module module-alsa-source source_name=delta_in device=hw:0

(both load-module incantations are just one line each)

And you could make that the default:

### Make some devices default
set-default-sink delta_out
set-default-source delta_in

I guess it is up to you. It does not seem to break anything if you leave
it enabled. Then you can use pulseaudio to play from browsers, etc.
Obviously if pulse audio is playing something you will not be able to
use jack on that card at the same time.
