Yes ! This is my particular Holy Grail wrt the CLM/CM/CMN/Snd suite. I'd
love to have such a tightly integrated environment as Ken suggests, and
I think that's how things are proceeding, yes ? However, patience is
required: it would be great to see the various GUI stuff for CM
available for Linux too, but I think Rick's rather overwhelmed these
days. Ach, if only I had another lifetime, then I could learn Gtk and
Guile/Gtk well enough to attempt the ports myself. Alas, I'm still
struggling to find the time to add new things to Snd.

But I think things will get there, it's all just a matter of time and

(Btw, do any of you remember what it was like to have spare time ? I've
completely forgotten... ;)
