I'm not sure what to make of this.  Are you saying that Rosegarden can't 
record audio, or that its audio facilities are so horrible that it's not 
possible to conceive of using them for something?

Ardour wins for features, sure, because it only does the one job.  However, if 
the field of consideration includes something like Audacity...  Are you nuts?  
Come on man, I'm fine with everyone preferring Ardour for audio recording, 
but you seem to be implying that Rosegarden is less useful for recording and 
mixing a one man band than Audacity, and that's simply ludicrous.
