Say I'm recording for a long time, leaving ardour running across
multiple takes. When I'm finished I go back and create regions for the
bits I want to keep etc. In this situation Ardour will never be able to
free up disk space because all sources are used by at least one region
on the timeline. Is that correct? Is there any way round this?

I understand that this is necessary because Ardour is a non-destructive
editor, I guess what I'd like to be able to do is say to Ardour "Kill
everything that's not on the timeline" and have it magically carve up
the existing sources. Sounds tricky though :/
