I meant that Ardour uses GTK and GNOME GUI standards would be welcome. I
think we
shold set some rules how to design Ardour GUI. It is changing on every
Ardour release.

It's obvious because Ardour is still in development but I think some rules
could prevent the mess in the interface and could simplify it. That, in fact
will make writing Ardour documentation easier.
