There is a very simple solution for this. Currently 'Save as' and
'New snapshot' save exactly the same file, the only difference
being that the latter doesn't change the current session name.
Now if 'Save as' would add a property 'is_session=True' and
'New snapshot' would not do that, then Ardour could do the right
thing when loading a file, i.e. only change the current session
name if this property is set and True.
Then if the user loads a snapshot AND wants to modify it, or
change the session name, then all he/she needs to do is use
'Save as' again. Or there could be an option in the 'Load'
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)
