there is. somebody announced a jack-over-udp client a week or so 
ago. browse the mailing list archive on jackit.sf.net to find out 
more. jo/rgen, if you are in hacking mood, i'm sure the author of 
the jack udp thingie would be interested in working with somebody 
who intends to use it professionally.

(btw, speaking of jack, ices2 has experimental jack support in the 
latest -kh snapshots. it's not yet real-time safe, but on lightly 
loaded systems it works quite well. i've been streaming the output 
of my mixing desk through a few jack apps to friends for a couple of 
days now :)
