[Ardour-Users] How do you use Jamin in Ardour (was: Cleaning up unused regions)

I was reading and saying "hey, good reason to master in a different session"
but after that, and now from my complete newbieness ;p ...wouldn't it also
be a good idea to reuse even the mix? if you need the album to sound the
same, comps and EQs on tracks should also be preserved, and maybe some
effect params and so. You could have a template project for a particular
band/artist/x built from the first song recorded or something.

Have I gone wildly crazy now? xD
