absolutely not. If Lumiera eventually grows into what we have in mind,
the (internal) wiring technically will have quite some similarities with
PD. Just with the difference that the Lumiera session will not so much
be a programming language, rather more like a set of rules gathered from
the objects in the timeline.
Conventional editing workflow is often limited in this respect, because
the elaborate sound (and esp. sound design) work tends to be quite
separate from the "image editing". My goal for us is to be able to do
fine grained audio work at places while still experimenting with the
rough edit structure of the whole work. (Through virtual clips, nested
sequences and object placements)

Thus, bidirectional Jack capability is a must for Lumiera. (We just
aren't at the point of worrying for the technical details yet).
- Just like Ardour, we'll get not only the master outs, but also
  configurable connection points from within the interconnected
  MObejcts (talking here from a users point of view)
- and our player needs to be able to run as transport master and slave
