Sorry for the flood.... I'm just brainstorming ;)

Paul Davis says that the Ardour backend is independent of it's gui. With 
other words, you can make Ardour as simple as you want.

I don't know how non-daw is build, but I can imagine the fast and simple 
interface on a Ardour backend...

Recording midi seems to be ok. I'm not sure if or how quantize works.

About the 'fork'... don't know if we would need another name or other 
project... Maybe 'we' can just work on the existing project, cause the 
starter of this project was pretty open for contributions afaik. A 
problem might be that we can't get contact with the author...
