I've saved a "template" a few times now.  There is no "load template" function 
though (or I missed it) and a new session starts blank as before.  How does 
the template function work exactly?

Why the resistance to allowing customization of the mixing window?  Is it a 
technical issue or ideological one?  As it stands, having to pop up a window 
for every EQ leads to the same problem you get with an app like Gimp -

Fiddling with EQ (and dynamics) sounds like a summary of every single engineer 
interview I have *ever* read in Sound On Sound (for example), every personal 
recording session I have taken part in (five paid for commercial recordings

have played / been at (of which there have been a lot).   

What exactly are you recording that you never need EQ at mixdown?
