Default Re: Folder Tracks?

I have an old license and I won't get folder tracks in PT, so take these comments accordingly. But I do use Reaper and its folder tracks a lot, and I can tell you that for me, it is a game changer. It's a really big deal if you use a lot of tracks. The ability to organize things in a logical manner and keep everything onscreen makes almost everything faster and easier. It's one of those small changes that seems insignificant on the surface, until you start to work with it. Then you wonder how you ever did without it. Users will like it.

I mean they don't actually add any functionality, apart from cosmetically and for me at least I can see they will potentially break a lot of programming of shortcuts I've done in Keyboard Maestro and Soundflow, which rely on the gui being as it is.
Perhaps when they arrive I'll be converted, but there are many other developments I would have found more useful that potentially actually do things in the audio domain.
I watched the Andrew Scheps video and he seemed excited. But basically its some tracks running through an Aux, that you can make smaller.
It'd be interesting to hear what others think.

I've probably opened a can of worms here, I'll take cover.
