I'm not opposed to a jack-less ardour.  It would come in handy for the
iPhone port :)

I am definitely *not* opposed to a GUI-less ardour engine.
I agree with you on both of these points.  I just don't think they
solve Patrick's problems in the way he might prefer. They might solve
a bunch of other people's, though.

Well, it doesn't have much use, but it would satisfy Patrick's
requirements.  You could use it for keeping visual tabs on more than
just ardour.  Also might be handy during mastering with Jamin, but
before you print.
But as a tool, it is kind of silly, I admit... audio is meant to be
heard after all.
