This makes eminent sense to me, with the sections giving you essentially 
reuseable elements.  There's no reason you couldn't create a bunch of 
6-bar sections and another bunch of 2-bar fills with which to assemble 
into a variety of 8-bar patterns -- and I start to wonder whether you 
can drag pre-definied sections from one open song file to another?  That 
would let you collect a local library of sections that you could then 
chuck around in different compositions.

Anyway, I look forward to wresting the computer back from my wife's 
masters thesis and doing something important with it, like playing with 
the new DB versions and making music :)
