[Simon Ubsdell] "What would be even nicer is the ability to layer in the secondary storyline which would make some music editing a lot neater. Secondaries are perfect for music - but oftentimes a crossfade just won't cut it."

You can kinda sorta do that now by expanding the audio (or components) on adjacent clips and dragging handles out. Works great for A/B cuts... throw C into the mix though and it requires piling another storyline on.

Better, and I've suggested this, would be the ability to expand a compound clip in place, or something like that. Or invisible compound clips, similar to the iMovie music secondary "track" but with ability to add additional lanes.

Despite the fact that it's sort of limited now, if you let your imagination run wild a bit, the possibilities of ridiculously cool ways to enhance secondaries, compound clips, audio components etc. are kind of mind boggling. For now... workaround city... ;-)
