switch to the "edit groups" panel of the RHS notebook. add a new edit
group. activate it. then to go to each track, click the (g)roup button,
select the new group.

after this, all region + range selections in one track will propagate
across the edit group, using the notion of "region equivalency". this
basically means that all regions that are at the same position, same
start offset in the underlying audio file and same size will be
considered "the same".

its a post-2.0 feature.

Carl, we'd love to see you on IRC someday. Thanks a lot for the patches
you've submitted via Mantis. Its always great to see another developer
who apparently "just gets" our codebase.
