So if it currently results in a stack of regions, this should become 
more handable with the new layer rows (I don't recall if those are 
only in trunk, or also in ongoing).

But in such a situation, the user is interested in only one of the 
takes, all others have to be muted and it would be nice to get them 
out of the way easily.
This could be handled with regions with an internal stack to select 
from (a region level playlist) via a menu. They would be created 
automatically on loop recording, but could be useful elsewhere as 
versioned/switchable regions.
