Just to be clear, as I'm finishing up general record-while-looping, I
discovered that it does indeed work (in current ardour 2.0.x) with a
loop range surrounding the punch range, but only if you have the
"Rec-enable stays engaged at stop" option enabled.  Furthermore, the
GUI will look correct with JACK transport sync, but with Internal sync
the region drawing during recording will be goofy, but will correct
itself at stop.   Just to make things fun, a bug prevents Rec-enable
from being turned off at all once the "stays engaged" is enabled!

Brett, if you are getting this to work currently without that option,
please let me know, because it seems impossible.

Regardless, I will post a patch for the new loop record stuff for
2.0-ongoing, as it was deemed to "feature-like" to commit to that
branch.  (note that I have not committed my changes anywhere yet)
