It works, but it is very limited. It can show which stops are available
or active and lets you switch them on and off. Nothing more.

No, they are in the 'presets' file which is binary and I wouldn't
want to edit that manually myself... If you just need a static
configuration (everything else should be possible via the couplers)
one solution is to let someone set it up in the GUI and store it as
the first preset which is also the default.
I know that Julien Claessen (on this list) has written some extensions
which make it more usable. He'll probably write to you if he reads this.
Aeolus is scheduled for a *major* rewrite (for its 10th birthday), which
is why since some time the released version is more or less frozen. In
the new release everything is OSC controlled (the GUI becomes a separate
program) so controlling in alternative ways will become a lot easier.
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
