slightly offtopic, but may have some relevance:
it would be really nice to be able to group regions into a single object
that could be moved/edited. an example of the usage would be say a vocal
comp track that you want to shift in time. no need to select each part, just
group them as one object and move the whole thing. it would also  be nice if
the automation tools were also available for objects, so that any edits done
to automation would follow around the object.
