Yehhss Yehhs - carry on the good work. LASH is indeed our last best hope
for peace ;-)

The trouble is, to get a total recall with the needed grade of totality,
you need to find out everything about the apps running in a session. Not
only their jackconnections but also the appropriate start-sequence and
most of all: the patches and project-files, they are using.

One way to achieve that would be, to provide a special-menu-app like
Dana Olsons Ubuntustudio-Starter. If you start an app from it, you could
be prompted to chose a pachfile to start the application with. But wat
if the user decides, that the basspatch he/she loaded for ams is not so
good and loads a FM-clavier instead with the file-open dialog of ams?

We think about some helper for LASH in Perl to do such tricks but not
much achieved we have yet...
