   It's an option, I suppose, but I'd think that over time you'd lose
information on what you did and why. If you did this more than once
how do you remember what you did on each bounced version. Also there
would be a sort of 'which one's on top - which one am I hearing?'
question in my mind. Maybe it's just me but I don't care for region on
top of region mechanics much.

   Automating plugins is a pretty normal request and a pretty normal
process. Having automation for the bypass fits that model pretty well
for me. And no information is lost along the way since it's just
automation and you can turn it on or off anytime you want.

Take care,
