[SCA-Dance] Rant: I want beats. I wants steps. I don't want measures.

Part of the problem is that different problems have different answers.  If
you are trying to understand the *steps*, most folks want to be thinking in
terms of beats.  If you understand the steps well and want to understand
the timing of the *choreography*, then measures are much more useful and
easier to grok.

So I suspect that there's no one-size-fits-all answer here: it all depends
on your audience...
