Enclose all the tracks in a general track tree

In an XML editor like XML notepad 2007 (or anything similar) things currently look like

pattern values
track
track
track
track
etc..

Better would be:

pattern values





Then the screen isn't cluttered with track items, as they're all enclosed in one 'tracks' item
-------------------------------------------

Enclose all other dynamic array'esque things in relevant groups as well

-------------------------------------------

Instead of a pattern number, also support 'n' as pattern number, which would simply mean 'next'. This way one can copy numerous patterns (like 20 patterns at once), without having to manually change the pattern numbers.

Same for pattern order.

-------------------------------------------

In revisit, make options to save a revisit song as
zip (like it is now)
module.xml
songname.xml

This would make it more easy to edit stuff: you don't need to unzip (into a new dir, as there's no doubt another module.xml in the current dir already), you don't need to zip again..

That's because it's that other *ML. You need to use & lt; and & gt; (without the space after &).

As for the ideas, I'll be taking a closer look at XML/developer-friendly interface design in reViSiT 2.0, so keep 'em coming!
