The 'test reload' could be done without having to quit/restart. After

can probably also reload the current one.
The command line option could do the same: cleanup, reload, if
the latter fails, move files back and report error, else really
Also, to be really sure one would have to reload _all_ snapshots.
Which reminds me of a related issue. Ardour does the right thing
for 'save as' and 'new snapshot' in that the latter does not
change the current session name used by 'save'. However, when
a snapshot is reloaded it does become the current session and
it will be overwritten by 'save', which may not be what the
user intended. This has bitten me lots of times. Putting some
marker in files created by 'new snapshot' could solve this.
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
