Bit late to the party:

There is a really nice new Jack audio output plugin been written for 
mplayer.  I intend at some point in the new year to nick the code and 
port it to xine and mythtv to replace the code I wrote (which currently 
uses bio2jack).  This should lead to a very neat and compact (and 
robust) jack output layer.  I really can recommend Jack to anyone who 
needs high performance audio mixing and audio plugins
