I see in  the FAQ:
Programs compiled against Jack 1 will work with Jack 2 without recompile (and vice versa).

Do you folks confirm?

If yes, let me rephrase my question: if jack1 or jacjk2 is mentioned as
build dependenecy, can actually use the other?

I ask, because as a package provider I'd rather ship jack2.
Then I could install jack1 locally to just build the packages that need
specifically this one, but I'd prefer to avoid that if I can.
