Being able to generate well-formed playlists from external apps
(CM) and importing them into existing Ardour sessions would be
extremely useful.  No.2 would be to export and work on
automation-data outside of Ardour, and importing back again.

As much scriptability of Ardour's interface (scheme or CL-wise)
as possible is very much desired!

OSC i/o of ardour, and being able to read files with OSC-bundles
to use as playlists (or something to translate to Ardour's
.playlist-format) could make flexible and general solutions
towards this.
