I have a bizarre question that's bounced around in the back of my head
for a few years...

I once wrote a singe where the time signatures changed with the
decimal digits of pi.  It made me think about writing music whose
temops and times were governed by arbitrary functions that would
output some integer or fraction to make into a time sig.

I'm not asking for this feature ::-).  But am I right in thinking that
if I were ever to hack that feature together, ardour now has the
foundation in place for it?

Thanks for entertaining my strange notions ::-)

make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians
have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine
man in the bonds of Hell."
