Is saving the snapshots with a different name in the first place
equivalent to renaming them at the filesystem level?
If I'm done with a snapshot, then do I just remove the .ardour
and .ardour.bak files for it? I haven't found a way to do this
in ardour yet, but I haven't looked either.
I'd assume that ardour does all the right stuff with regards
to cleaning up unused sources and flushing the wastebasket (is
that what it's called? I don't have ardour where I'm writing
this). By "right stuff" I mean that unused sources are those not
referenced by any of the .ardour files in the current project's
So many questions, but I'm just that ignorant of the facts. I
suspect I'm trainable tho. ;-)

That's fine. I suppose the "diff" idea could be pretty darned
hard, and maybe need to be designed in from the start, if its
even desirable in the first place. I haven't seen that feature
on any audio gear or software I've been exposed to. I do see it
on high-end electronic test equipment, e.g. oscilloscopes costing
multiple thousands or 10s of thousands of US dollars -- I work in
that industry and save/recall setup is part of my vocabulary.
