Supporting Jack and thus Ardour is definately on the list, no need to
discuss about :D

Over time Lumiera may get audio capabilities like cinelerra or ardour,
but there is a gotcha: Lumiera is not intended to do realtime
processing, it aims for best effort (proxy editing) which makes it look
almost realtime for someone working at it. But there is no 'hard' low
latency realtime sync gurantee which will give some headaches (but i
think we'll solve that) and it is not intended as live mixer or VJ'ing tool.
