I believe that ardour should err on the side of opening a session,
instead of failing to open it.  If we can instead log the problems
we had, and open the session in spite of those problems (and create
a special backup that can be later used for reconstruction maybe),
I think users would be much happier.

Obviously, normal operation of ardour (non-crashing, and even
crashing) should not render the session corrupted in the first
place, but that is an ongoing debugging task.
