Hmm, "Freeze Track" can also be interpreted as "I am currently happy with the
state of the whole track including volume and pan, freeze it"...

Actually the only sane way to freeze is to freeze after the last effect before
the first signal-split. Or at every effect->signal split junction, but that
creates one file and thus one disk-stream per signal split. Which might add so
much disk load that its contrary to the whole "less cpu-load by freezing"-
Hope that makes sense, back to the movie and then Morpheus calls.
