[Ardour-Users] join songs with links to files

I'm working on a CD, and I'd like to use ardour for joining the 
individual songs into a whole, some with cross fades, others with 
overlaps, also maybe a bit of processing here and there.

The thing is I'm still working on the songs, but would like to make a 
project in ardour that have the transitions and processing *and* that'll 
allow me to work on the songs (in external software) and automatically 
have these changes reflected when I open my ardour project.

I tried "import" and un-checking the "copy files to session", but it 
seems that it doesn't work as I expect, upon updating the songs 
externally, ardour still uses the previous version (I of course close 
ardour when working on the songs).

I seem to remember doing this before (and it worked), and have a vague 
recollection of a "link to files" check box, that seems to have been 
replaced with "copy files to sesion".

So, although ardour in this way might be considdered abuse, is there a 
way to achieve what I'm looking to do? Or did I simply overlook 
something or do something wrong?
