Very nice function, which will certainly speed up the process under
discussion. This brings two possible features in mind, though. Version
flagging and version comments. This way, taking the violin example, one
could record several violin takes, some for one part, some for another,
adding an appropriate comment, such as, for example, "Pizzicati". Once
done, one could review each take, marking it as Active or Inactive. It
would then be a simple matter of exploding the Violins track to turn
each Active take into a track, possibly taking the first word in the
comment field as the new track name. What do you think?

Cheers,
