as robin noted, its really nothing to do with the backend, and
entirely to do with the GUI.

the a3 GUI is admittedly still a little intimidating on first glance,
because it covers a lot more than the a2 export dialog - it allows
multiple, parallel exports in different formats. i hope that some
simplification will occur there early in the life of 3.0.

the reason for not adding it to 2.X is that its in feature freeze.

not at all. you can map individual tracks to the available (2) channels already.
