Is this feature likely to be included in 2.0.4? It will need to be documented in the manual if  it is.

I'd also like to add some of the other fixes that were in the version that I submitted for review 10 weeks and 3 days ago but cannot create patches until this feature is either accepted or rejected.

Thanks for testing Gale.
The bug that prevented "Align Tracks Together" from working when there
are start times before zero should be fixed by
AlignEndToEndMinimal.patch. Because we wanted "Align End to End" and
"Align (Tracks) Together" to be the first two items in the "Align
Tracks" menu it would have been silly to not fix that. Unfortunately
we don't have the separator that we wanted between these two menu
items and the rest, but I can't see any way to do so without moving
these options out of the align Labels array. Perhaps Vaughan can
advise on this?
