Hi Esben,
you can make pulseaudio to input/output to JACK. Nobody claims
pulseaudio could replace JACK, but actually it _supplements_ JACK
very well. It is not very known pulse can use jackd, but it is
very well implemented. Just try it - it is worth to set up.

The key is:

load-module module-jack-sink
load-module module-jack-source
set-default-sink jack_out
set-default-source jack_in

in your 

It works as a charme. In combination with 

pcm.pulse {
    type pulse
ctl.pulse {
    type pulse
pcm.!default {
    type pulse
ctl.!default {
    type pulse

in /etc/asound.conf or ~/.asoundrc 
your alsa-applications are now usable via jackd. And unlike the
alsa-jack-plugin this configuration works very well with any
alsa-application I tried, including the applications that didn't
work with the alsa-jack-plugin. 
You could even setup more complex configuration with more jack-ports and
use specific applications binded to specific jack-ports, but as
basic start the above works very well.
