I cannot provide my two cents as the best way to go. All i am working on is the new sharing platform.

What I would like is Toby's input due to the fact changing the format to something else other than mmpz would require some modifications to the LSP2 database code.

This would benefit a lot from a new file format, that would in some
way encapsulate all the samples a project depends on. As it is now
projects aren't really portable unless you stick to the stuff shipped
with LMMS.

This would be either
a) an extension of the current MMPZ format, adding the samples in as
e.g. base64 encoded strings (they should compress pretty well), or
b) a zip-archive containing the project file and the related files.
(which is how Renoise does it)

My gut says a) is the way to go, but I could be wrong.
