Basically yes, but not entirely. Stefan Kangas adapted the timecode widget
from Ardour last Winter/Spring. Indirectly, I myself was involved into that
effort too, as it prompted me to deal with some aspects of timecode handling
and the library functions for "quantising" (grid aligning) time values.

Generally speaking, we're constantly short on developer manpower, while at
the same time being highly ambitious with our goals. For my part, this means
jumping between several frontiers and having half finished construction places
here and there.

Most relevant for the GUI is the problem that currently the underlying model
in the Proc-Layer is such a half finished construction place. And I need to
concentrate more on the engine interface (the more low-level parts of
Proc-Layer). Joel Holdsworth already started to use some placeholder model
objects in the GUI. Stefan Kangas continued a bit with that effort.

IMHO that's a good approach. Thus, for now the GUI can use this placeholder
model, and we'll later change these objects into proxies calling down into the
Proc-Layer, when the model there is mature enough. Basically, this decouples
GUI development a bit from the rest.


Cheers,
Hermann
