Bad wordings. I ment that traversos interface is about efficiency, or at 
least that the main focus is about efficiency. Thats how it appears 
too me. It might be simple and intuitive too though, I haven't given that 
much thought. :-)

Well, I would like for another daw to take over so that the good 
programmers would work on that other daw instead. Unless; Ardour either 
gets a significantly more efficient user interface, or it gets support for 
an extension language so that it will be possible to customize it without 
dwelling into thousands of lines of C++ code.
