hi remon - great to see all the recent activity in git!

i always thought the Sheet concept was a useful and interesting departure from 
the norm. here's why:

we often need quite different mix setups for various songs on a CD. i don't 
think there's ANY really logical way of keeping all that on one timeline -- we 
might have different plugins, different tracks, etc., etc., so separate 
"sessions" of some sort makes sense. in traverso with Sheets, at least we could 
keep various radically different mix setups together within one project, and 
switch effortlessly between them. then we can write out the mixed tracks, and 
set those up in another sheet to play with the sequencing, fine-tune the heads 
and tails, and do the mastering, which makes sense, conceptually, because we 
are looking at unifying the project at that point.

also, there's the case of a bunch of songs which are a conceptual group -- a 
"project", as it were -- but which are not destined for release as a sequenced 
CD. in such a case, the timeline model is dysfunctional.

of course, we also had the option of laying it all out in one sheet from the 
beginning, if the destination is a sequence of songs and if the mixes are close 
enough to make that feasible.

it sounds to me like your new proposal would not allow this sort of 
functionality within one traverso "project" -- is that right?
