Personally, I'm fine with having large files in my session

wherever you want and making 'external' references to it in the
session (and hopefully the application involved uses the symlink
technique we've discussed for referring to external files)--all
without the SM having to know anything about it.

Right. As long as there are symlinks it's fine, except that I think it
should be the user deciding where things are stored rather than
individual applications.

Remember, you can always write a simple shell script that moves WAVE
files etc. into a central location outside of the session directories
and replaces them with symlinks. Again, this would be the user
deciding what to do and the SM or the application doesn't have to know
anything about it.

I think this is very much a corner case anyway. Normally, one wants
all the project data and media to be stored on the same filesystem, as
close together as possible, and doesn't care about being able to
duplicate a session with gigabytes of audio data (because... why are
you doing that anyway and why are you doing it so frequently that just
creating the symlinks yourself is too much trouble). Unless the use
case is very compelling, it's hard to justify adding any complexity or
requirements to either the SM or the client applications. Remember,
this is Unix--we don't have to stuff all the functionality into one
tool.
