yes, of course -- agreed on all counts. however, sometimes very tight 
timelines for initial rough mixes get in the way of that.

this is the sort of thing which would really interest me -- a "show me 
the peaks above this threshold" thing. sawstudio, which i ran in my 
windows days, had that sort of a utility and it was very handy.
