I'd like to throw an oar in this river: it seems to me that if you're
importing (rather than recording) a bunch of tracks, and recording
others, *and you're in a low disk space environment* (and this will
happen, and I think it's worth catering for myself, but it's a value
judgement, certainly), then you might want/need to zap specific audio
track files, without cleaning up *all* unused sources... unless I fail
to understand what Ardour's idea of an "unused source" actually is.
