jackd1 can't be used with ladish, since we don't provide jack1dbus.
AFAIK, there's a patch somewhere, but it's simply not necessary, jackd2
is just fine for that, so we leave jackd1 as is for the purists (no
dependency on dbus and the like).

IMHO, the paragraph about the no-self-connect patch can be removed
entirely, since we already do the right thing(tm). ;)
