It is probably hard to find a layout which fits everyone's needs. I am
using ardour mainly for recording/editing of classical music, no
overdubbing and similar, and ffwd/rew is really useful for me (although
jumping to next/previous marker sounds great also, never used it before
;-) ).

A possible extensio could be to map home/end via shift1, and put
rew/ffwd on the same buttons without shift. Or use shift1+loop /
shift1+click for rew/ffwd, this is possible to reach with only one hand
(shift1+previous/next is hard to reach).

Anyway, it is great not to configure the bindings for each new project,
and multi-channel controls work much better with MCU surface mode than
with plain midi bindings. Thanks again!
