could you please reconsider jack 0.116.0? According to [1], upstream
suggests that "nobody should be using 0.109.2", the version we currently
have in testing.

Moreover it would really help packages like xine-lib and others (58
packages in total) that build-depend on libjack-dev to migrate to

If you are stating clearly that you reject the new upstream version, we
can consider reverting the package in unstable. However this would be,
as explained above, against upstream's suggestion..
