Yes, and I guess that's what the %README% placeholder is for.

I think it could be argued that as long as there is a mention, something
to the effect of "This package will also build and function with jack2"
in the README file, that's more or less fair warning for the
semi-experienced JACK user.

I think in the future, I'll use %README% in REQUIRES to alert the user
that the version of JACK is optional.
