There are actually very good reasons to use ardour for post-processing of 
 - Its completely non-destructive, even if you slice your 2-hour-file into 
10-seconds snippets and rearrange them and delete them one-by-one, you still 
don't loose the material. Yes, you should have backups, but who knows...
 - Its _very_ easy to apply mastering effects over the whole session. (And 
with the jamin-control-plugin you can change settings between songs.)
 - And all editing on effects and automation is non-destructive too. That is 
very nice compared to clicking "apply effect (silence)", having the computer 
work for ten minutes and the realize that a) its the wrong effect and b) 
the "create undo" wasn't selected.
 - ardour is definitely not trying to load the whole 2-hour file into ram...
