Linux is in a similar situation - theres the gstreamer apps, and the JACK apps. id argue for merging of gstreamer and JACK so that we can finally get what CoreAudio has had for years. but clearly the two sides havent shown much interest in merging their efforts.

i've been a strong advocate of the dictatorial approach. but one thing
you are missing here is that it took this (LAD) set of rag-tag
programmers to bring inter-application audio routing to CoreAudio. JACK
continues to provide the OSX community with something that neither Apple
nor Propellerheads have so far been able to willing to do. Dictators are
useful, but so are a bunch of blowhards, sometimes.
