One of the reasons I've kind of stopped using Ardour is because of the
sheer size of the package, with its own weirdass not-quite-the-same Gtk
libraries and so on.

There's no such thing as a distro-neutral binary package.  If that's the
route Ardour is taking in the future, then I'm even less likely to keep
using it.
