Along somewhat similar lines, is anyone experimenting with Ardour and 
related apps in a multiprocessor box?  While Ardour itself isn't 
especially CPU hungry, I'd think that being able to spread the processor 
load from plugins and so forth over multiple CPUs, or assign those tasks 
to other CPUs could be useful in some situations.
