If this is still the case with ardour2 we would like to know about it
and fix it if possible.

I've submitted a feature request on your behalf in the bug tracker:


If you could take a look and give any suggestions that would be good.
It should be pretty straight forward to implement this, probably less
code than a script, the only downside that I can see being that you
may have to wait a little bit for a release that supports it.
