Something that's been occuring to me today:

Linux has ramdisk support, though it's seldom used or talked about as
much as ramdisks used to be on the Amiga platform long ago...

I can hardly imagine an Ardour project bigger than 512MB. A 1GB project
would be humongous...

These days you can have 8, 16, 24...even more...gigabytes of real
memory...

What's really stopping anyone from having an Ardour project in ram, and
bypassing the whole sata/scsi subsystem completely, saving the kernel a
ton of i/o, and making *lots* of simulateous tracks possible?
