So you're not suggesting enforcing a 4:4 based meter or anything, but
rather relaxing the interface away from the traditional notation to a
'this bar's tempo is X bpm and there are Y beats in this bar.'
If so then I would gladly see this go in to Doggiebox. Sometimes
mixing time signatures up can be a little clumsy if you're mixing say
5:4 with 6:8 or something. I've only used Doggiebox briefly (alas, I
need 30 hours in the day :)) but I had trouble trying to create a
measure of 5:8 - can't remember why... the current interface didn't
like it, I think.
