[Andrew Johnstone] "FCPX however is a different issue. And this is GRIPE 1:

While I can, in theory ingest material into a 'library' (a 'project' in old money...why did they change the names...!) and 'leave files in place' FCPX does not in practice let me do this with material from my FS7. It sees an Sony card file structure as the card it self, not the copy of a card and the only option I have is to ingest the material into the library.

You DON'T have to ingest files to the library, ignore the import file function and simply go into your original card file footage and drag all the .mxf files into whatever FCPX library you are using making sure you have "keep files in place" selected in preferences. (see video below)

[Andrew Johnstone] "Even on the much faster Macs at the BBC, the background tasks grind to a halt if you are cutting"

Background rendering in FCPX ISN'T background rendering, it only works when you are not performing edit operations.
