Hey, speak for yourself, pal :)

No, but seriously, of course I understand that reasoning.  Still, it would 
be a nice thing to have as an option.  My CPU is nearly idle when I'm 
recording -- I'm not using any plugins or doing anything fancy yet, but 
still.  I'm used to my friends' systems where they run Windows and record 
with Cakewalk or CoolEdit or things like that, so I just naturally expected 
that ardour would draw the wave as it records it.

It's certainly not anything important, but as far as the GUI goes, it'd be a 
nice option.
