true -- I've not worked with soundfiles larger than 2 channels yet but I 
can see the logic in that decision

yeah I'm working on a project where most of the files are right channel 
I'm layering these on stereo tracks and channel swapped some them so 
they blend across the stereo field more evenly
just thought it might be cool to see a track of stereo files as 'left 
heavy' vs 'right heavy' so I could follow which track was which -- not a 
big deal...

interesting...I remember following a thread about editing the .ardour file
what would editing the xml file allow me to do?
