    +1.  i also was involved in some discussion about this on IRC and
agree with Seablade, Kim, etc.: i would greatly appreciate an option
which allows Ardour to create an auto xfade ala A2, even if it does not
track changes to the involved regions and update the xfade (i.e. there
is no XFADE object).  this is a handy feature for quick prototypes that
could default to off in standard A3.  in this situation, i assume that
removing the overlap and redoing it would recreate the xfade anew?
