I should point out that your requirements as a music maker and those of audio
engineers like myself are mutually exclusive in many respects.

I need flexibility and configurability, plus access to the source code,
in order to do my job effectively. Of course it should be possible to cater
to both sets of users, but I don't see how it can be done easily. Don't
Windows and OS X already offer what you describe?
