Perhaps it could be phrased differently then. Instead of just "If Xorg7",
could it be something a bit more descriptive? Even "If using Xorg7" makes
it more clear to me.

Well, I think the whole thing should be removed, so I suppose we'll
just have to leave it. I think the way it is worded is technically
inaccurate. You can have a NAS daemon and a JACK daemon running and
what compatibility issue would you have?

I'm not trying to be a smart-aleck here, I just don't know what
isn't compatible.

We don't say on the Cups page that it isn't compatible with the
LPRng server, and vise-versa. And to me, there would be much more
chance of a compatibility issue with those two, than with two
different audio servers.
