|Summary||0000368: Linked samples in MPTM format|
The nice thing about ITP files is that you can link to samples rather than embed them in the track, saving space on your HD (since you're not duplicating the waveform).
I'd love if there were like a checkbox either on the Samples page or the Comments page for any sample i wish to link to rather than embed. This would keep file size down and as well as HD footprint. Of course the disadvantage would be that i could not manipulate the linked waveform from within ModPlug.
As an extra bonus, the Cleanup Manager would allow the user to remove embedded waveforms and use the links as expressed in the File field on the Samples page. (It might be good to move the Pitch Shift group down a little so the File field can be lengthened.)

|Tested code revision (in case you know it)|
Magnet links for samples are already on the must-have feature list for the new and improved MPTM format. Don't ask me when that is going to happen, though... To reduce hard disk usage, you can try using IT-compressed samples: http://forum.openmpt.org/index.php?topic=4961.0
Skaven's ideas from http://forum.openmpt.org/index.php?topic=2515.0 (revised ITP functionality):
I think it would be a good idea to ditch the ITP format (make it import-only) and add functionality to link samples to the MPTM format. Any sample metadata (frequency, loop points, etc.) from the referenced WAV/FLAC/etc. sample would be overriden by the stuff stored in the MPTM file, only the waveform would be imported.
I have now pretty much implemented Skaven's ideas, removed ITP support (or rather, make ITP support read-only) and added on-disk samples for MPTM and instruments.
