    thanks for the reply.  i thought so too, but Session->Cleanup asks
about removing regions that are still associated with currently
playlists, as well as asking to delete the currently unused playlists
themselves.  for large sessions, going through a dialog for every
playlist is daunting, and more importantly mistake/error prone.
