So ... thanks everyone for the info.

If ecasound can record in freewheel mode (someone mentioned it can),
then really I'm happy enough with that and some console-based MIDI
sequencer.  I dislike GUI's for most things besides browsing the web, so
I think I'll feel at home :)

It's really what Ron Parker is talking about, more than anything: once I
have the settings perfect and I'm ready to bounce, I want it to happen
quickly.  But, at the same time, I don't want to have to check every
single operation by ear to listen for little glitches because at some
point I ran out of CPU power.

Anyway, it looks like I've waited just long enough now to switch over
(2.6 kernel, freewheel) and again, I appreciate the response.  Still
interested to know what's up with Ron and Ardour and JAMin though ...
