We give a new heuristic for all of the main terms in the quotient of products of L-functions averaged over a family. These conjectures generalize the recent conjectures for mean values of L-functions. Comparison is made to the analogous quantities for the characteristic polynomials of matrices averaged over a classical compact group.
