It is possible that you is right about that stuff... anyway, I see no
other way to do that on hurd without break the design...

I hope ngHurd people consider that and do not make 'everything is a
file' design. For sound, video, network.... stuff.

"File descriptors are not bad. The problem is an interface based around
open/read/write/close. Video has the exact same issue, with the
solution widely understood: individual apps do not
open/read/write/close the video device." - paul-davis

Yes, I've talked to Paul Davis, the author of JACK. He would advice
you to start a thread on the jackit-devel mailinglist[1].
