the %L and %R naming convention comes from protools. its not very
important if you build the session file yourself. it does have
semantic significance if you ask ardour to import the files for you
because it does some heuristics about grouping foo%L and foo%R into
the same track if it seems appropriate.

if that's the core of your troubles ... then smile on :)
