OK, I thought that spawned this. It's a pretty good coincidence that you

Compiling just Ardour is relatively simple compared to toying with
system-wide jack-install. Besides, there's http://nightly.ardour.org/
which can be installed in parallel to distro builds if you want to check
it out.

The "Excl. Solo" "Solo >> Mute" button combination defines the width.
The rest moves along and fills available space.

There's the idea to provide a "narrow" mode: just Volume, Mute, Dim  and
SiP, AFL, PFL.  will have to experiment a bit.
