Although we would expect the user to install rman as a part of xorg7, it
can be done without it.  It is also on a completely separate page.  If
rman was just one of the applications in one of xorg7's wget statements,
I would not have put it into the dependencies, but I wanted to emphasize
that it is required for NAS in this case.

Yes.  Or at least don't try to run the JACK and NAS servers at the same
time.  If you can think of better wording, go for it.
