I think "close to" would be about right, on my system anyway.  If I 
let ardour keep trying to play the song, then it eventually quits 
throwing up those "disk too slow" messages and the song plays fine.

It looks like I'll have to be a bit more judicious about which drum 
takes I keep, and do that up front in the project, rather than 
keeping lots of takes and then comparing them.

What do other people do with ardour, or other systems do to allow for 
multiple takes to stick around?  For me, being able to [de]activate
mix-groups of tracks, whereas now I'm [un]muting mix-groups of tracks,
would be a good solution.
