Trying to clear the Release_Checklist, (and forgetting all the for and
against arguments) I have committed a change that makes all the
relevant audio selected after 'repeat', including original bit.

Thanks, Martyn. I realised after opining that including the original
bit was more useful that it was you who changed that behaviour
to exclude it!
Anyway, if a majority of voices want to change it back, we can
always do it, as long as new selection length is fixed so that it reflects
I noticed a few things when I was testing Repeat (they were the same
before your latest commit, but it's an opportunity to mention them):
* If you generate a default pluck of 1 second, Repeat does not
include the original in the "new selection length". So, length
was actually correct before the commit, but now isn't. I can't
find any other Nyquist generators that do this, and if you
change Pluck to a longer duration, the new selection length
in Repeat then includes the original, even if you change
Pluck back to 1 second. Pluck was changed last year to
use Edgar's "snd-pluck" function instead of Nyquist "pluck",
to fix clipping at the start. Should I ask Edgar about it?
* If you select all of a clip to repeat (or all of an unsplit track),
the repeats become separate clips. I tend to think this is
wrong in the case of a whole track that's never been split,
at any rate it does confuse users who never use split.
* If you select a region inside a clip, split that and repeat it,
the repeats don't become separate clips. I'm not sure if that's
best, or intended so I'm just checking - I don't have any
strong opinion there.
