[linux-audio-user] Audio sandbox..

I have been thinking about the problem of apps not remembering their
connections etc. and also the problem with manually loading patches etc.
The fact that my desktop can automatically restore previous state (with
reasonable accuracy) makes me thing that this should not be a really big
problem (although I recognise the fine detail is more problematic).

I may be really underestimating the complexity here, but it seems to me
that the best way to achieve this would be to have a kind of sub-shell or
sub-window manager sandbox just for the audio apps. You then launch the
apps within this, and have the ability to save state ( which just
replicates your actions within the window for a future session).

Anyone got any thoughts on this? It is a bit beyond my mediocre Python
skills (I think), but I know there are developers here who might be able
to pick up and run with this idea.

The beauty of it, as I see it, is that apps don't have to be aware of the
structure: they just do their thing and the sandbox remembers all the
human input to get them into the correct state.

So what do you all think? possible? impossible? already done?
